From his embed with US Marines Echo Company in Afghanistan, photojournalist and filmmaker Danfung Dennis reveals the devastating impact a Taliban machine-gun bullet has on the life of 25-year-old Sergeant Nathan Harris. The film seamlessly transitions from stunning war reportage to an intimate, visceral portrait of one man's personal struggle at home in North Carolina, where Harris confronts the physical and emotional difficulties of re-adjusting to civilian life with the love and support of his wife, Ashley. An unprecedented exploration of the moving image and a film of uncommon intimacy, 'Hell and Back Again' comes full circle as it lays bare the true cost of war. Winner of two awards at the Sundance Film Festival 2011: World Cinema Grand Jury Award, Documentary and World Cinema Cinematography Award.
