Norwich University’s Schools of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Office of Veterans’ Affairs will host filmmaker Carol Dysinger at a screening and discussion of her documentary film, “Camp Victory, Afghanistan,” on Tuesday, March 1 at 7 p.m. in Dole Auditorium, located in Webb Hall.

The film, which runs approximately 84 minutes and “gets at the stark reality of the US/NATO ‘exit strategy’ from Afghanistan,” was shot over the course of five years and follows a battle-hardened Afghan General and the steady stream of US National Guard soldiers, including those of the Vermont National Guard, deployed to train him and his army.

Dysinger is a Professor of Graduate Film and New Media at NYU Film School in the Tisch School of the Arts.

This event is free and open to the public.
