OSCAR NOMINEE HELL AND BACK AGAIN PREMIERES ON INDEPENDENT LENS on MEMORIAL DAY, MONDAY, MAY 28 AT 10 PM ON PBS
What does it mean to lead men in war? What does it mean to come home—injured physically and psychologically—and build a life anew? As more and more veterans return from deployment these questions will have to be answered not only by those who fought, but by their families, friends and fellow citizens.
Filmed and directed by Danfung Dennis, Hell and Back Again seamlessly transitions from stunning war reportage to an intimate, visceral portrait of one man's personal struggle back home. There Sergeant Nathan Harris confronts the physical and emotional difficulties of re-adjusting to civilian life with the love and support of his wife Ashley. Masterfully contrasting the intensity of the front lines with the unsettling normalcy of home, Hell and Back Again premieres on Independent Lens on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28 at 10 PM on PBS.
