A Fighting Season (82 min) 

On the brink of the 2007 U.S. troop surge, two Army Recruiters face the daunting pressures of recruitment while their own deployment is on the line.  Sgt. Harris (Temple) has been stationed in the recruiting office long enough for it to feel like home.  On the other side of the world, a roadside bomb rips through a Humvee, and after recovering from the attack, Sgt. Mason (Crawford) gets reassigned and winds up in Harris’s office.  Mason wants to go back to the front lines, but he finds out that the war isn’t confined to the battlefield.

A FIGHTING SEASON is a SAN FRANCISCO FILM SOCIETY KRF grant winner. Previous winners of the grant include Sundance Film Festival and Cannes Film Festival winners Beasts Of The Southern Wild and Fruitvale Station.
