Matinee Screening: A Company of Soldiers

Screening Sunday 2nd September, 2007

At a time when Storyville is under threat we celebrate the BBC’s documentary strand on two consecutive days showcasing the world’s most notable independent films made during the last 10 years.

A Company of Soldiers

Tom Roberts spends a month with a US Army division stationed in south Baghdad as they battle insurgents and try to bring peace to this war-ravaged country.

A Company of Soldiers shows troops talking freely about their experiences and military role in one of the most dangerous parts of the world. It offers a rare first-hand account of the difficulties of rebuilding a country in violent disarray.
