Screening – Battle for Marjah

Screening November 19, 2010 7:00 PM

The Battle for Marjah covers the US Marines’ largest operation since the start of the War in Afghanistan with unprecedented and extraordinary access. Journalist Ben Anderson was exclusively with Bravo Company, 1/6 Marines, who landedin the centre of Marjah before anybody else. Becuase Ben spent two months with the Marines, eating, sleeping,running and sweating alongside them every step of the way, the access is intimate and intense- three days of fighting and interacting with suspicious members of the Afghan population create unparalleled tension. 

The Battle for Marjah iis a breathtaking film that shows just how dangerous and difficult the situation in Southern Afghanistan has become, and how hard it will be to turn around.
