"The Hour" with George Stroumboulopoulos

"Julian spent time living in Kandahar, and not on the Canadian military base. He went out talking to suicide bombers and he made sure cameras got inside Taliban camps. Ultimately, the film suggests the Taliban are gaining ground in southern Afghanistan, and creating a new generation of fighters, that are more tech saavy and more violent."
