Sebastian Junger On WAR, The Arab Spring & Tim Hetherington
Sebastian JungerFor fifteen months between 2007-2008, Sebastian Junger was embedded in a US army platoon based in Afghanistan’s remote Korengal Valley. His goal was to convey what soldiers experience day in, day out – what war is really like. The result of his reporting was the simply titled May 2010 book, WAR and a documentary film called Restrepo. Junger joined us in June 2010 to mark the book and the film’s release – and a year later – for better and for worse: a lot has changed. The Arab Spring uprisings and the death of Osama bin Laden have rocked the Middle East and then two months ago – devastating news on a personal front. In early April, Junger’s dear friend and his Restrepo collaborator, British filmmaker and photographer Tim Hetherington, was tragically killed in Misrata, Libya. We reached out to Sebastian Junger shortly after Tim Hetherington’s death and made arrangements for him to join us here in the studio today (before his 7 p.m. speaking engagement at Porter Square Books).
