Host Frank Stasio talks with Tim Hetherington about the film and about the experience of embedding with a platoon.

Photojournalist Tim Hetherington wants you to experience war, and he put himself in harm’s way to do it. Hetherington went to one of the most dangerous outposts in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley and filmed 15 soldiers as they engaged in combat over the course of a year. The footage became an award-winning documentary called "Restrepo."
