Immediately after the September 11 attacks, the U.S. government initiated a secret war in Afghanistan.

In Legion of Brothers, acclaimed filmmaker Greg Barker ("Manhunt," 2013 Sundance Film Festival, PrimeTime Emmy Best Documentary) reveals this unexplored story through interviews with several Green Berets who played pivotal roles in these unconventional warfare missions — from building a coalition with Northern Alliance rebels, to facing off against the Taliban and al-Qaeda.

On June 1, join New America NYC at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum for a screening of Legion of Brothers followed by a conversation with the director, producers, and lead subjects of the film about the ongoing national security challenges of the War on Terror.
