Restrepo re-airs on the National Geographic Channel tonight.

On 20 April, Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros were killed in Libya.


Both were veteran and brilliant photojournalists: see Hetherington’s work here and Hondros’ here.


On 25 April, National Geographic Channel will re-air Restrepo, the 2010 Oscar-nominated documentary that Hetherington co-directed with Sebastian Junger. See PopMattersreview.


Hetherington talks about the film and his photography in a recent PBS interview.


And Hondros discusses his ninth trip to Iraq, in a 2007 NPR interview.
