Bouhammer.com is very pleased to be the first to announce that the much anticipated and sought-after documentary by Scott Kesterson and David Leeson is finished and complete. ATWAR is the product of Scott’s time as an embedded journalist and blogger from May 2006-May 2007 with the 41st Brigade from Oregon and the entire Task Force Phoenix in Afghanistan on the front lines of the Global War on Terror. You can read more about AT WAR at www.atwarfilm.com.
The film has went through several focus group screenings with high praise and positive feedback. Most recently it was screened this past weekend at the Dallas Video Festival where the audience response was also very positive.
The next screening will be unique and an invite only-showing. It will be shown next at FOB Lightning in Gardez, Afghanistan near the end of November. Sorry, only those deployed there will get the chance to see it and provide feedback. Since Scott is currently back in Afghanistan he will host that showing and gather feedback on the spot.
The process has begun to host screenings at select locations throughout the country. They have not all been confirmed yet, so stay tuned to this blog for updates as more information becomes available.
If you have never seen a trailer from AT WAR, or if you would like to see them again I have embedded all 6 in this blog for your viewing pleasure.
This is a documentary like no other. It will truly suck you into the moment and you will forget where you are. If there was ever a film that could transport you from your comfortable couch into the sights and sounds of a war zone, then this is it.
