RESTREPO FILM IN SALFORD
 

Star date: 31st October 2010 

RESTREPO BACK IN SALFORD 

Restrepo and Broken Britain screening
2nd November 7:30pm £6
Islington Mill

Restrepo, the award winning documentary which brings the warts and all Afghan War to the movies, gets another showing in Salford this week, in a joint screening with Future Artists' short Salford army drama, Broken Britain.

Full details here…


Named after a US military medic who was killed in action, Restrepo is an army outpost way up in the hills of the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan. This feature length documentary, which won the Grand Jury Prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival, takes viewers into the lives of 15 soldiers as reality tv goes on holiday to one of the most dangerous places on earth.

Screened in Salford only two weeks ago, the film gets another showing this week in a Future Artists event at Islington Mill where there will also be a screening of the short Salford army drama Broken Britain (see here) plus a Question and Answer session afterwards.

The screening is part of a nationwide launch by its distributors, Dogwoof Films, to get Restrepo to the largest possible audience.

"Films like Restrepo are very important, and challenge an audience, but a gritty documentary about frontline life fighting a war, is not mainstream fair, and would struggle when placed against the latest Hollywood Blockbuster" says Future Artists' Mark Ashmore "We got the call with Dogwoof films and Restrepo after successfully marketing and distributing our own film about soldiers returning from Afghanistan, a film called Broken Britain which was shot in Salford in 2008. Broken Britain will also be screened as part of the night's film programme."

For more details on Restrepo plus a trailer see the previous Salford Star article here..
