Oscar®-Nominated for Best Documentary Feature, Restrepo to Have Encore Broadcast on Nat Geo Channel

HollywoodNews.com: Following this morning’s announcement by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences that Restrepo is nominated for Best Documentary feature, National Geographic Channel (NGC) announced today an encore broadcast of the film on Wednesday, February 2, 2011 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The film will air in its entirety, unedited and with limited commercial interruption.

SYNOPSIS

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Restrepo is a feature-length film by award-winning photojournalist Tim Hetherington and journalist/author Sebastian Junger that chronicles the deployment of U.S. troops in the Korengal Valley, one of the most dangerous outposts in Afghanistan. The movie focuses on a remote 15-man outpost, Restrepo, named after a platoon medic who was killed in action. This is an entirely experiential film: The cameras never leave the valley; there are no interviews with generals or diplomats. The only goal is to make viewers feel as if they have just been through a 94-minute deployment. This is war, full stop. The conclusions are up to you.
