Film follows US army in 'most dangerous place on Earth'

Award-winning documentary Restrepo chronicles the year-long deployment of a small platoon of American soldiers in a tiny remote outpost in the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan.

In making the film, Tim Hetherington made 10 trips to the Korengal, spending months living with the soldiers with no running water, no electricity, no heating or lighting.

The director spoke to BBC News about making the film and the time he and the soldiers spent in what some call the most dangerous place on Earth.
