Competition: ‘Camp Victory, Afghanistan’ DVD giveaway *closed*

To celebrate the DVD release of the critically acclaimed Camp Victory, Afghanistan (2011), we are giving away a copy of the film to THREE lucky winners. Using 300 hours of footage shot over three years, this extraordinary and thought-provoking documentary follows battle-hardened Afghan Brigadier General Sayar and the friendship he develops with an American Colonel enlisted with helping him turn ragtag groups of uncertain, impoverished men into a trained, standing Afghan National Army.

This unexpected camaraderie is captured between them despite Sayar’s growing exasperation with the US, and their growing friendship reveals the human cost of an impossible policy. The film is an intimate, realistic account of the constant cultural and professional conflicts between the Afghans and the visiting armies. While lack of trust runs strong, stronger are the tight emotional bonds sometimes formed between leaders in the rebuilding of a nation despite political and social barriers.

To be in with a chance of winning, just answer this simple question:
