Sarah Jaffe Writes Score to 'At War'

Sarah Jaffe

Two weeks ago, we mentioned the forthcoming documentary titled At War, about U.S. combat troops stations in Afghanistan. It was directed and shot entirely by a former soldier-turned-photojournalist from Portland named Scott Kesterson, who spent a year in Afghanistan and is currently in Dallas editing the movie with producer David Leeson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer for The Dallas Morning News.

Today, The Oregonian has a piece on the film as well, and we noticed there was a new trailer available -- this one, scored by multi-Dallas Observer Music Award-winner Sarah Jaffe. The song is called "Swelling," which you can also hear on her MySpace page. -- Robert Wilonsky
