Bards of War


AFGHANISTAN. Your job is to build an Army to fight an enemy who attacks from the shadows and rarely shows his face. Your life is defined by a small firebase at the end of a long suply chain where daily survival is a test of your wits and your skills as a soldier.

Bards of War is the compelling and tense story that chronicles a small group of US and Candian soldiers tasked with a mission of seemiingly impossible odds. Shot and directed by award winning photographer, Scott Kesterson, Bards of War is a gritty, dirty, chaotic ride into a rarely seen glimpse of war through a soldier's eyes. It is the story of men of spirit and perseverance who were given the difficult assignments with only one expectation… succeed.

Bards of War sets a new standard for combat photography and combat reality. Currently in post-production, Bards of War is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2012.
