"If you watch only one film on Afghanistan, make it CAMP VICTORY: AFGHANISTAN."

Camp Victory, Afghanistan is a verite documentary that tells the story of several U.S. National Guardsmen stationed in Herat, Afghanistan and the Afghan officers assigned as their mentees. Together they've been tasked with building the 207th Corps of the nascent Afghan National Army into an institution capable of providing stability, peace and justice to a volatile nation. Although the United States has poured military aid into Afghanistan, money alone does not produce an army; people do. And these Afghans and Americans have more in common than anyone would expect. With lives on the line, can a modern Afghan army be created when 80% of the enlistees are illiterate; all are impoverished; the weaponry is second rate; and the enemy is elusive, dangerous, and lawless?
