The Hornet's Nest is a groundbreaking and immersive feature film, using unprecedented real footage to tell the story of an elite group of U.S. troops sent on a dangerous mission deep inside one of Afghanistan's most hostile valleys. The film culminates with what was planned as a single day strike turning into nine intense days of harrowing combat against an invisible, hostile enemy in the country's complex terrain where no foreign troops have ever dared to go before. Two embedded journalists, a father and son, bravely followed the troops through the fiercest and most blood-soaked battlegrounds of the conflict. What resulted is an intensely raw feature film experience that will give audiences a deeply emotional and authentic view of the heroism at the center of this gripping story.
CITIZEN SOLDIER is a unique inside look into the Oklahoma 45th National Guard Brigade, better known as the “Thunderbirds.” Sgt. Eran Harrill represents the members of the Thunderbirds well. He is a hero, a devoted single father and a proud member of the Oklahoma National Guard. The film, CITIZEN SOLDIER, is as close to experiencing war on the front lines of fighting without actually being there. Eran and many of his fellow soldiers used helmet cams to capture the daily life of their unit – a unit that had one of the highest enemy kill rates, as well as one of the largest casualty counts of the Iraq and Afghanistan war.
This is the story of the National Guard…one day working a normal 9 to 5 job, the next day fighting America’s wars on the front lines, building global partnerships when asked, and protecting the homeland- at all costs. This is CITIZEN SOLDIER.
This film is fully funded and will be distributed worldwide in 2016.
