Shepherds of Helmand Trailer (2010)

Trailer for the documentary Shepherds of Helmand.

In 2008, an all-volunteer group of National Guard Soldiers from Oregon deployed to Afghanistan to train the Afghan National Army. Their mission was to be a first-of-its-kind ‘counter narcotics’ battalion sent into the deadly Helmand Province to interdict the opium trade. The mission quickly breaks down and the soldiers find themselves separated and isolated on remote patrol bases along the Helmand river. At Patrol Base Attal (Afghan word for ‘warrior’) the men suffer daily attacks from a determined enemy committed to over running the base and killing everyone inside it.

Shepherds of Helmand takes viewers deep into an Afghanistan rarely seen by the outside.
