“Retrograde” Coming Soon To Disney+ (Canada)
Disney has announced that the National Geographic film, “Retrograde”, will be released on Disney+ in Canada on Friday 13th January 2023.
The feature documentary is an Our Time Projects production from Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning director Matthew Heineman (“Cartel Land,” “City of Ghosts,” “The First Wave”). The film is produced by Caitlin McNally and Heineman; executive produced by Carolyn Bernstein, Baktash Ahadi, David Fialkow and Joedan Okun; edited by Pablo Garza, Heineman and Grace Zahrah; with cinematography by Tim Grucza, Heineman and Olivier Sarbil; and music by H. Scott Salinas.
“Retrograde” captures the final nine months of America’s 20-year war in Afghanistan from multiple perspectives: one of the last U.S. special operations forces units deployed there, a young Afghan general and his corps fighting to defend their homeland against all odds, the civilians desperately attempting to flee as the country collapses, and the Taliban take over. From rarely seen operational control rooms to the frontlines of battle and the chaotic Kabul airport during the final U.S. withdrawal, Heineman’s latest film offers a cinematic and historic window onto the end of America’s longest war and the costs endured for those most intimately involved.
The film was previously released on Disney+ and Hulu in the United States earlier this month. “Retrograde” premiered at the 2022 Telluride Film Festival, has been selected for the 2022 DOC NYC Shortlist and is nominated for Best Political Documentary at the 2022 Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards.
