RETROGRADE brilliantly captures the final months of America’s twenty-year war in Afghanistan from multiple perspectives: one of the last US Special Forces units deployed there; a young Afghan general and his corps fighting to defend their homeland; and the civilians desperately attempting to flee as the Taliban take over. From rarely seen operational control rooms to the frontlines of battle to the chaotic Kabul airport during the final US withdrawal, Matthew Heineman’s new immersive work offers a cinematic and historic window onto the end of America’s longest war, and the costs endured for those most intimately involved.
