The gripping true story 13 HOURS: THE SECRET SOLDIERS OF BENGHAZI was honored as the closing night film at this year’s GI Film Festival in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, May 29th. It is a must for all interested in the Libyan controversy in the American election campaign of 2016. One can only hope for a swift distribution of the movie in Europe.
Three of the real-life heroes upon whose story the film is based-John “Tig” Tiegen, Mark “Oz” Geist and Kris “Tanto” Paronto-attended the red carpet screening, along with one of the stars of the film, actor Dominic Fumusa (“Nurse Jackie”).
13 HOURS: THE SECRET SOLDIERS OF BENGHAZI tells the incredible true story of six elite ex-military operators who saved the lives of more than 25 Americans against overwhelming odds at a U.S. diplomatic compound in Libya.
Directed by Michael Bay, the film stars John Krasinski (TV’s “The Office”), James Badge Dale (World War Z), Dominic Fumusa (TV’s “Nurse Jackie”) and Pablo Schreiber (TV’s “Orange is the New Black”).
The movie is based on the book “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” by New York Times best-selling author Mitchell Zuckoff with the members of the Annex Security Team.
13 HOURS: THE SECRET SOLDIERS OF BENGHAZI is available now on Digital HD and arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on June 7th in the United States.
