Four years after making Oscar-nominated film "Restrepo," about soldiers' life on the Afghan frontline, Sebastian Junger focuses on their thoughts on war, addiction and friendship, in a long-awaited followup.2010's "Restrepo," named after a tiny military outpost in northeastern Afghanistan, won an Academy Award nod for US journalist Junger and his British co-director Tim Hetherington.But Hetherington died while reporting in Libya in 2011, forcing Junger to delay "Korengal," which is released in the US this month, and which explores the young veterans' thoughts once back home.Junger and Hetherington had already planned the outline of "Korengal" when they made "Restrepo".The film's release coincides with President Barack Obama's announcement that the US will end its troop presence in Afghanistan by 2016 -- a decision welcomed by Junger.
