Renny Harlin offers insight into the making of 5 Days of War, his most personal film to date
5 Days of War is an action-packed international thriller from acclaimed director Renny Harlin. Based on true events, this intense film is a vivid account of a renegade American journalist, his cameraman and a local woman caught behind enemy lines, and determined to not only survive, but tell the world what was happening, during the swift but devastating 5-day war between Russian and the Georgian Republic in 2008.
We recently caught up with Renny Harlin to talk more extensively about the film and what inspired it. Our conversation is below.
