CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE
This film, less than 30 minutes, will be shown after the first film of the evening, "Children of Abraham," also about 30 minutes.
This documentary, short as it is, is able to present the untold story of Falluja. The plight of civilians is the unreported story of the Iraq War. The civilian refugees of Falluja risked their lives to tell this story to the world. And recording their story are the only independent journalists to live with the people of Fallujah. This film is the eyewitness account of these un-embedded journalists, outside the influence of the military or corporate media, capturing the unique and honest perspective of the civilians themselves. The Iraqi civilians who survived inside the city during the battles asked these jounralists to tell their story to the world. By detailing what is actually happening to civilians in combat zones, this film shows why many of the people in Iraq have lost faith in the stated American policy goals and why America has lost the “hearts and minds” of the Iraqi people.
Before and after the films, everyone's invited to indulge in our Humanist Tea House.
