Sebastian Junger & Guillermo Cervera

A Discussion Between an Oscar-Nominated Director and Internationally Acclaimed Photographer

From 2007 to 2008, writer, seasoned war journalist and filmmaker Sebastian Junger went on patrol, survived an IED attack, endured firefights and boredom, and bonded with the soldiers of Camp Restrepo. Junger went on to direct the Oscar-nominated film Restrepo, which documented his year in Afghanistan. Guillermo Cervera is an internationally acclaimed photojournalist, documenting armed conflict and social issues for the international press.


Sebastian Junger and Guillermo Cervera recently spoke at NeueHouse about Junger’s latest documentary, The Last Patrol, and how the context of war can transform a person’s identity.
