Exclusive Clip: CITIZEN SOLDIER, Heart-Stopping Terror For Your Brother
It's a beautiful day in Afghanistan. Overhead, the sun is shining, puffy clouds push through the sky ... and four RPGs are on their way, headed straight for a small group of soldiers.
In our exclusive clip from Citizen Soldier, a documentary by David Salzberg and Christian Tureaud (The Hornet's Nest), the team has just been attacked, an attack that left a fellow soldier dead. An officer checks with his team members, to ensure they can deal with what they must do in order to survive.
Here's the official synopsis:
Citizen Soldier is a dramatic feature film, told from the point of view of a group of Soldiers in the Oklahoma Army National Guard's 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, known since World War II as the "Thunderbirds." Set in one of the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan at the height of the surge, it is a heart-pounding, heartfelt grunts' eye-view of the war.
A modern day Band of Brothers, Citizen Soldier tells the true story of a group of young soldiers and their life-changing tour of duty in Afghanistan, offering an excruciatingly personal look into modern warfare, brotherhood, and patriotism. Using real footage from multiple cameras, including helmet cams, these citizen soldiers give the audience an intimate view into the chaos and horrors of combat and, in the process, display their bravery and valor under the most hellish of conditions.
The film opens in select theaters tomorrow, August 5, then becomes available nationally on all major Video On Demand (VOD) platforms as well as Blu-ray and DVD on August 30. Below you can watch the clip and also the trailer.
