Summit Home Entertainment has acquired the documentary “Brothers at War” directed by Jake Rademacher. The film chronicles Rademacher’s attempts to understand the experience, sacrifice, and motivation of his two brothers serving in Iraq. Summit plans to release the film onto DVD in conjunction with the home entertainment debut of Summit’s “The Hurt Locker,” which is set to arrive in stores January 12, 2010.
“‘Brothers at War’ is a powerful documentary which is a perfect compliment to ‘The Hurt Locker,’” said Steve Nickerson, Summit’s President of Home Entertainment in a statement. “The latter is a dramatization of the modern American soldier and combat in the 21st century, while the documentary tells a similar story, but with real people in very real situations.” [Andy Lauer]
