This program is cancelled

Junger explores the harsh realities of soldiers dealing with war and combat. For 15 months, Junger followed a single platoon through its tour of duty in Afghanistan’s dangerous Korengal Valley. Junger examines the physical and mental strength needed to fight, serve and survive on a daily basis. This experience also led to his documentary Restrepo, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year.

Junger will speak in San Francisco on May 25.
