[Theater Screening] Retrograde


About the Screening

Join us for drinks & hors d'oeuvres for the post-screening reception of RETROGRADE on September 27th at Chaplin Theater  (5300 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038).

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Matthew Heineman, producer Caitlin Mcnally, and cinematographer Tim Grucza.

Retrograde captures the final nine months of America’s 20-year war in Afghanistan from multiple perspectives: one of the last U.S. Special Forces units deployed there, a young Afghan general and his corps fighting to defend their homeland against all odds, and the civilians desperately attempting to flee as the country collapses and the Taliban take over. From rarely seen operational control rooms to the frontlines of the battle to the chaotic Kabul airport during the final U.S. withdrawal, Oscar-nominated, and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Matthew Heineman’s latest film offers a cinematic and historic window onto the end of America’s longest war, and the costs endured for those most intimately involved.
