While we're reflecting on this year's FLEFF and recalling the eye-opening films shown at the festival, I would like to take this opportunity to recognize the work of filmmaker and photographer Tim Hetherington, who was killed in Libya last week along with photographer Chris Hondros.

We screened Restrepo at IC not too long ago as part of Buzzsaw Magazine's militarization week. The documentary showed a view of soldiers in fighting that I personally don't think I've ever gotten before from any other visual or printed work. The discussion the film inspired afterward got people to speak honestly about war and, despite how much the film had just showed us, just how much we don't know.

To learn more about Restrepo and the work of Tim Hetherington, here are some links:
