Watch: 'Korengal' Will Show You What It Feels Like to Go to War

Restrepo sequel Korengal

As we honor those who gave their lives while serving in the United States Armed Forces over this Memorial Day holiday weekend, one movie will attempt to show us what it actually feels like to go to war. Picking up where the Oscar-nominated Restrepo left off, Korengal --which hits theaters on May 30-- returns to the same valley and same commanders for a deeper look at why we fight and how war affects us in completely different ways.

If Restrepo revealed what it was like to experience war, Korengal will show us how those experiences shape the soldiers who live them. Check out this trailer below.

 

Restrepo will always be remembered for its unflinching look at war from the sort of intimate, guerilla-style perspective we don't often see on film. Directors Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger went to great lengths to embed themselves with one platoon for an entire year inside the deadliest valley in Afghanistan. It was always their desire to release a follow-up to Restrepo, but then Hetherington tragically lost his life while covering the civil war in Libya. In honor of Hetherington and in the spirit of finishing what they started, Junger assembled the remaining Restrepo team members and pieced together Korengal, which looks just as gritty, heartfelt and courageous as the film that started it all.
