  • Where Soldiers Come From

    2011. USA. Directed by Heather Courtney. From a small, snowy town in northern Michigan to the mountains of Afghanistan, Where Soldiers Come From follows the four-year journey of a close-knit group of childhood friends who join the National Guard after graduating from high school. Chronicling the young men’s transformation from restless teenagers to soldiers looking for roadside bombs to 23-year-old combat veterans trying to start their lives again, the film offers an intimate look at the young Americans who fight our wars, their experience of far-away conflict, and the families and towns from which they come.
