Gi Film Festival San Diego Kick Off Party & "Kilo Two Bravo" Screening says

Featuring the 2014 British film, “Kilo Two Bravo,” a dramatic retelling of a harrowing rescue in the midst of the Afghanistan conflict. Q&A with Director Paul Katis and reception follows.

“Kilo Two Bravo” – UK – 108 minutes – Dir. Paul Katis – 2014 – Narrative Feature
Young British soldiers find themselves courageously fighting for each other’s lives in a minefield where the next step could be their last. From the Academy Award winning producer of “The King’s Speech” this British Academy of Film and Television Art (BAFTA) nominated thriller tells the true story of the bravery and brotherhood that took place on the Kajaki Dam at the height of the Afghan War. Rated R. NOTE: “Kilo Two Bravo” contains scenes with very strong language and strong bloody injury detail that some viewers may find distressing.

GI Film Festival San Diego is presented by KPBS in collaboration with GI Film Group and Film Consortium San Diego.

The GI Film Festival San Diego is part of an expanding KPBS initiative to better serve local military with meaningful content. Such content includes a four-part radio series called "Incoming," which aired in May and featured stories written and narrated by local veterans. KPBS also contributes to the NPR series "Back at Base," a multi-station collaborative chronicling the lives of U.S. troops in their local communities. By presenting the GI Film Festival San Diego, KPBS will continue to build on its military-related content and engagement programs.

Now in its tenth year, the GI Film Group produces and curates the annual GI Film Festival, which takes place each May in Washington, DC and Virginia. The San Diego festival allows the GI Film Group to extend their mission of preserving and sharing the stories of America’s GI to a new audience in San Diego.
