A photojournalist’s first-hand reflections while covering war, Kandahar Journals follows Louie Palu’s experiences with several Canadian and American regiments for five years. The film’s extraordinary visual narrative weaves back and forth from the chaotic and experiential side of the war (via intense close-up footage) to the monotony of everyday life back at home in North America.
