THE OUTPOST Director, Rod Lurie, on Afghanistan and Telling a True Story

Director, writer and producer Rod Lurie is getting terrific reviews for his film, THE OUTPOST, which tells the true story of an attack on an American outpost in Afghanistan.

This film is not pro-war or anti-war and doesn’t have a political slant one way or another but does provide the viewer with an immersive, riveting experience.

Mark talks with Rod about shooting this movie which feels all too real and how, several times, the movie almost didn’t happen or was derailed.

It’s Rod and Mark for the entire episode.
