The Taliban now control more territory than they have at any point since they were overthrown in 2001. Yet the war in Afghanistan barely gets mentioned today, even as civilian and security deaths continue to rise. VICE correspondent Ben Anderson returns to the conflict he's covered for 10 years, reuniting with several Afghans—an Army major, a policeman who dismantles IEDs, and a family that was forced to fight to defend its home—for a shocking report that questions what America's longest war has actually accomplished. VICE's “Taliban Resurgence” debuts on HBO Friday, May 5 at 11:00 pm.

 

This screening will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with VICE correspondent Ben Anderson and special guests.
