Hell and Back Again
  • Year2010
  • Duration88 min

When Nathan Harris joined the US Marines at the age of 18, all he wanted to do was kill people. Now 26 and on his third deployment, he is leading a group of soldiers on the Afghanistan frontline. They daily do battle with the invisible Taliban, whilst wreaking havoc with the lives of Afghan villagers. Acclaimed war photographer Danfung Dennis is embedded with the troops, using innovative camera techniques to capture the often harrowing action. After Harris is badly injured and sent home, he must play “a whole lot of wait and see” to try to overcome his injury, as well as battling a nascent addiction to painkillers. By intercutting two overlapping narratives shifting between the twin hells of Afghanistan and American suburbia, Dennis tells a mesmerising story of one man and his demons on and off the battleground. Winner of the World Cinema Jury and Cinematography Awards, Sundance Film Festival.
