Columbus library screening of 'Hell and Back Again' postponed

The documentary “Hell and Back Again” will have to come back again later.

The film about the war in Afghanistan was to be screened at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Columbus Public Library on Macon Road, but the event has been postponed until further notice, the library announced today.

“Georgia Public Broadcasting will be announcing a new date in the near future,” library spokesman Henry McCoy wrote in a press release.

The film is about an injured soldier who returns from Afghanistan and adjusts to life at home.

Photojournalist and filmmaker Danfung Dennis follows Marine Sergeant Nathan Harris from the battlefields of Afghanistan to his home in North Carolina. Harris was wounded in Afghanistan in 2009. The film provides a glimpse into Harris's life in the aftermath of his military service and the physical and emotional challenges he faces.

Moving back and forth between scenes of Harris' current life and dramatic footage of his company's action in Afghanistan, the film reveals a dedicated Marine who must come to grips with major changes in his life.
