LRFF To-See: 'Hell and Back Again'

"HELL AND BACK AGAIN"
dir. Danfung Dennis. 88 min.

Like Tim Hetherington, the late co-director of "Restrepo," last year's LRFF Golden Rock winner for Best Documentary, "Hell and Back Again" director Danfung Dennis has a background in photojournalism. Since 2006, he's covered the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for just about every major publication in the U.S. That means Dennis isn't afraid to venture to the front lines and takes special care to get artful shots. The winner of Sundance's World Cinema Jury Documentary Prize and World Cinema Documentary Cinematography Award, the film shifts between the frontlines with Sgt. Nathan Harris of U.S. Marines Echo Company and North Carolina, where Harris struggles to adjust to civilian life and recover from a serious injury sustained during battle. The Hollywood Reporter called it "brilliant" and "gut-wrenching."
