Finding the Goalposts in 'Camp Victory, Afghanistan'

Monday, May 31, 2010

No one said America’s mission to train Afghan troops was going to be easy. The question of just how difficult it would be drove filmmaker and professor Carol Dysinger, personally curious by America’s strategy to exit Afghanistan by building up a national army, to find out more.

For her film, “Camp Victory: Afghanistan,” Dysinger travelled to Afghanistan five times to make the film, following the stories of U.S. troops in Afghanistan and the Afghan army they were training. (You can watch a short clip from the film below.)  "Camp Victory: Afghanistan" will be featured at the Human Rights Watch film festival from June 10 – 24 in New York.

Guests:

Professor Carol Dysinger
