The Outpost w/Q&A | Additional Films and Guests
A Q&A with filmmaker Rod Lurie, composer Larry Groupé, and producer Marc Frydman will follow the screening.
Based on true events, in this military thriller a small unit of U.S. soldiers, alone at the remote Combat Outpost Keating located deep in the valley of three mountains in Afghanistan, battles to defend against an overwhelming force of Taliban fighters in a coordinated attack. The Battle of Kamdesh, as it was known, was the bloodiest American engagement of the Afghan War in 2009 and Bravo Troop 3-61 CAV became one of the most decorated units of the 19-year conflict. The Outpost is based on The New York Times best-selling non-fiction book The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor from CNN’s Jake Tapper. [123 mins; drama; English]
