NYC PREMIERE: After The First Wave, which documented New York’s under-resourced health care workers during the height of the pandemic, Matthew Heineman returns with a film on another crisis of policy, politics, and morality—the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan. With unprecedented access inside Camp Sohrab, where the US military intended to train the Afghan soldiers to fight the Taliban, the film watches doom unfold with a sense of foreboding, putting faces and lives to names our news cycles have already forgotten.

The first screening will be followed by a Q&A with Matthew Heineman and Caitlin McNally.

All in-person screening venues provide hearing impaired listening devices upon request with venue management.

All guests & staff will be required to comply with our Health & Safety protocols while attending DOC NYC events. For the latest information, please review our policies here.
