Two new documentaries that offer important insight into the experience of soldiers in Afghanistan are making the rounds.

“Where Soldiers Come From” tells the story of childhood friends from a small town in Michigan and how their lives change after they are all deployed to Afghanistan. The New York Times called the film “quietly devastating.” Watch the trailer below, and find out if it’s playing near you here. 

In “Hell and Back Again,” photojournalist Danfung Dennis shows the devastating impact of a machine-gun bullet on Nathan Harris, a 25-year-old sergeant. The film won the grand jury prize at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Watch the trailer below, and find screenings here.
