VIDEO: Netflix Releases Trailer for Documentary FATHER SOLDIER SON

Article Pixel

Netflix has released the trailer for original documentary FATHER SOLDIER SON. This intimate documentary from The New York Times follows a former platoon sergeant and his two young sons over almost a decade, chronicling his return home after a serious combat injury in Afghanistan. Originating as part of a 2010 project on a battalion's yearlong deployment, reporters-turned-filmmakers Catrin Einhorn and Leslye Davis stuck with the story to trace the longterm effects of military service on a family.

At once a verité portrait of ordinary people living in the shadow of active duty and a longitudinal survey of the intergenerational cycles of military service, FATHER SOLDIER SON is a profound and deeply personal exploration of the meaning of sacrifice, purpose, duty and American manhood in the aftermath of war.

Watch the trailer below!

FATHER SOLDIER SON debuts July 17 on Netflix.
