A quick fyi: To mark Remembrance Day, the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) has made Claude Guilmain’s documentary The Van Doos in Afghanistan available online for a limited time. You can watch it free until Monday. The NFB writes:
In this documentary, we hear directly from francophone soldiers serving in the Royal 22e Régiment (known in English as “Van Doos”) who were filmed in the field in March 2011, during their deployment to Afghanistan. They speak simply and directly about their work, whether on patrol or performing their duties at the base. The film’s images and interviews bring home the complexity of the issues on the ground and shed light on the little-understood experiences of the men and women who served in Afghanistan.
You’ll find other free films by the NFB in our big collection of Free Movies Online. It now has north of 435 films on the list.
