Kandahar Journals is the story of a photojournalist who reflects on the events behind his psychological transformation after covering frontline combat in Kandahar, Afghanistan from 2006 to 2010. He begins writing a series of journals reflecting on his personal experiences and what the war looked like and felt to him. The longer he covered the war, the more he realized the disconnection that exists with the public back home, the war and himself.

Louie Palu (Co-director, Producer and Director of Photography for Kandahar Journals) will introduce the film.
