Preview of Battle for Hearts and Minds

I was just made aware of this upcoming documentary today by the boys over at VAMC and after watching it I can say I like what I see so far.

This is the third in a list of movies that follow the Cinema Verite style of film-making. The first was Scott Kesterson’s AT WAR, and the second was the recently released RESTREPO by Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger.

This movie, Battle for Hearts and Minds was filmed by Danfung Dennis while he was embedded with the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade in 2009.

The expected release of this documentary is slated for 2011. Keep an eye out for it and know you heard about it here first, on
