The feature documentary Restrepo was one of Neil’s picks from his time at the Cornwall Film Festival 2010. The Sal Giunta Story is a part of the wider tapestry of Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger’s feature:
On November 16, 2010, Staff Sergeant Sal Giunta of the 173rd Airborne will become the first living Medal of Honor recipient since the Vietnam War. His actions occurred in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley duiring the deployment chronicled in the movie “Restrepo.” This fourteen-minute video tells his story.
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
