A year after returning from the frontline in the Vietnam war David, Dennis and Lamar shared their struggle to return to normal life in Michael Grigsby's critically acclaimed and award winning  I Was a Soldier that became 'a classic' film in the history of documentary.

We Went to War sees Grigsby return to the stories of those once young Americans, now aged and scarred by lives lived far too brutally, far too young, poignantly echoing the experiences of those men and women struggling to reclaim such familiarity now, in the aftermath of Iraq and as the war in Afghanistan rages on.

After the film we will be joined by co-directors Mike Grigsby & Rebekah Tolley for a Q&A.

''One of Britain's finest documentarists" - Time Out

"His films are landmarks... from Girgsby back to Grierson runs an unbroken tradition in British documentary making: a passionate commitment to the poetry of everyday life." -The Independent
