A note from Sebastian Junger:

I’m writing to let you know that my next film, KORENGAL, is about to come out on May 30th in New York. Tim and I had planned to make a follow-up to Restrepo, but a few weeks after going to the Oscars, Tim was killed in Libya while covering the civil war. I teamed up with our original editor and continued the project anyway. Restrepo was intended to give civilians an idea of what combat feels like; KORENGAL is completely different. It is meant to help soldiers – and civilians - understand the experience of war. How does fear work? What is courage? Why do so many soldiers miss the war? Why is it so hard to come home?
KORENGAL is completely self-financed and self-released. The upside is that no one could tell us how to make our film; the downside is that it is incredibly hard – and expensive – to get an independent film to hit critical mass and go nationwide. But that is exactly what we are going to try to do. If we sell out the Sunshine Theater (Houston and First Avenue) on opening weekend (May 29-June 1), Landmark will take our film nationwide. It will be a real victory for independent film – and for the whole national conversation about war and its aftermath.
In addition, a ticket stub from the film will get you a free beer or house wine at the Half King (23rd Street and Tenth Avenue ) on opening weekend.
Obviously the daytime shows are the hardest to fill, so if you can go to those instead of an evening show, that would be fantastic. Thank you so much for your support. I can’t wait to hear what you think of our film.

NOT to be missed tonight at 8.00pm EST on HBO is 'Which Way Is The Front Line From Here?' The life and times of Tim Hetherington by Sebastian Junger.

Hard to believe its two years already since Tim was killed. I took the video above at his presentation during the New York Photo Festival in 2009. Well worth a look if you have the time. His passion, charm, class and talent all ooze off the screen even in this low quality recording. 

Here’s to you Tim !!!!!!

Today Dec 5th is Tim Hetheringtons birthday. I have reposted our little Meet the Hetheringtons video in his memory…
