Falluja April 2004

Japanese video documentarian Toshikuni Doi was in Falluja two weeks after the U.S. invasion. He was one of the few international journalists able to show the reality of the invasion. Falluja has become a symbol of the resistance movement against the occupation by the U.S. In April 2004, U.S. forces invaded Falluja with several thousand U.S. soldiers. About 730 people were killed and 2800 were injured in the siege in one month. Doi interviews medical workers and teachers as well as people in the community about this horrendous assault and the cost of it for the people of Falluja. Why did Falluja become the base of the resistance against the occupation? How did the U.S. forces attack? Who fought against them, and what injuries and damages did the people suffer? This important film exposes all this. Only 10 days after the U.S. attack, Toshikuni Doi went to Falluja and investigated the site. Footage was recorded in August 2003 (4 months after the siege) and in May 2004.

The Film is FREE but $5 donations are accepted.
