AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Australian filmmaker Benjamin Gilmour wants his new film to be an answer to "Hollywood war porn" such as American Sniper, Lone Survivor and Zero Dark Thirty. The paramedic who directed the touching Pakistan drama Son of a Lion and the documentary Paramedico is planning to head to Afghanistan to shoot Return to Kandahar, a drama about a former US marine going back as a tourist to track down the family of an unarmed civilian he killed during a raid on a village. It was partly inspired by watching how Hollywood has been telling war stories.'
