Trailer: Father Soldier Son arrives on Netflix this July
Staff Reporter | On 02, Jul 2020
Netflix takes us into the personal cost of war in new documentary Father Soldier Son.
The intimate film 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 explores the meaning of sacrifice, purpose, duty and American manhood in the aftermath of war.
The film arrives on Netflix on Friday 17th July. Here’s the trailer:
Father Soldier Son is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
