“The Hornet’s Nest” Documentary Takes Viewers Inside the Afghanistan War

Hornet's NestThe Hornet’s Nest, a documentary film about the Afghanistan war will be shown at the Rochester Hills Public Library on Wednesday, May 20 at 6:30 p.m.

The Afghan conflict is America’s longest war at 14 years and counting, yet few Americans really understand what it is like for our troops there. The Hornet’s Nest is an immersive film that portrays combat and the bond that soldiers have for each other with actual footage of one of the largest battles of the war. Filmed and narrated by Emmy-Award winning father and son journalists Mike and Carlos Boettecher, the film offers a stark, front row seat to history. The movie is apolitical and contains no actors, special effects, gore or scripted dialogue; the action is real, visceral and will have you at the edge of your seat. Please note that this film is Rated R for language. Kevin Mott, the father of one of the central characters, will host a discussion following the movie.
