Director’s Statement
After the experience of making Passchendaele, Paul Gross’s 2008 feature film about the epic First World War battle, which took twelve years to finance, he thought he would never make another war film, but in 2010 he was invited to go on a Good Will trip to Afghanistan with the Canadian Forces to visit the troops. “I found the experience unexpected and mesmerizing,” says Gross. “Being in the middle of a war zone, the sheer complexity and the dignity in which Canadians are represented by our soldiers, it occurred to me that I wanted to return to Afghanistan with a camera team and document as much as I could.”
