Hell and Back AgainHell and Back Again

Hell and Back Again intertwines the extraordinary drama of war and, for a generation of soldiers, the no less shocking experience of returning home.Embedded with the US Marines Echo Company in Afghanistan, filmmaker and photojournalist Danfung Dennis documents military violence with visceral immediacy. After a major battle in 2009, Dennis turns his attention to Sergeant Nathan Harris of the Echo Company as he returns home to North Carolina with life-threatening injuries sustained in Afghanistan. With the love and support of his wife, Ashley, Harris struggles to overcome the difficulties of transitioning back to civilian life, dealing with intense physical pain, psychological dislocation, and chemical dependency. Masterfully contrasting the intensity of the frontline with the unsettling normalcy of home, Hell and Back Again lays bare the true cost of war.

Dolphin BoyHell and Back Again

In an Arab village in the north of Israel, a teenage boy named Morad suffers a violent attack and becomes disconnected and withdrawn. As a last resort before being committed to a psychiatric hospital, he is taken by his devoted father to Eilat for treatment with dolphins. Morad begins to speak again after months of silence, but erases his past memories and connections and refuses to return to his mother in his home village. A powerful documentary about a soul and spirit devasted by human violence and healed by the power of nature and love, Dolphin Boy follows Morad and his family over the course of four years.
