Sound on Sight Radio Rewind – Episode #257: ‘Restrepo’ / ‘Armadillo’

- Advertisement -

Tim Hetherington, co-director of the Oscar nominated documentary Restrepo was killed while covering the Libyan conflict today. It is sad news considering he was so young and talented and still had so much to offer the world, so I felt the least we could do is republish our review of his film from our podcast. Derek, Justine and Simon tackled two very different visions of the war in Afgahnistan: first up is Restrepo, which at the time, was announced as an Academy Award nominee, and which takes a talking-heads approach mixed with raw, handheld footage of soldiers in action; the other movie was a controversial Danish movie by the name of Armadillo, whose imagery is strikingly cinematic, and whose climactic minutes have been a source of debate in many circles. Derek also spoke to director Janus Metz about the process behind the film.
