Witness the overlapping stories of a Marine at war and of the same Marine in recovery at home. 

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? In Hell and Back Again, airing Monday, May 28, 2012 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 11 and 1011), two overlapping narratives are intercut — the life of a Marine at war on the front and the life of the same Marine in recovery at home — creating both a dreamlike quality and a strikingly realistic depiction of how Marines experience this war.

panel discussion after screening of hell and back

i hope that there will be at least one person from afghanistan on the panel. the war in afghanistan is an incredibly important subject and i hope that people will get a more comprehensive understanding of its reality.
