Documentary film about the invasion of Iraq

2 Plaza Street, San Francisco

March 19th at 7 pm
Suggested donation of $5 - $10

About the film:

In April 2004, Fallujah, an Iraqi city with about 300,000 people and 100 mosques, was sieged and invaded by thousands of US troops. Many reports said six or seven hundred people, most of them Iraqi civilians, were killed in the attack. 10 days after the siege had been lifted, Toshinkuni Doi, a Japanese journalist, entered the beleaguered city. He filmed damaged houses, destroyed buildings, hospital beds, makeshift clinics, and a football ground turned a grave yard. He talked with the fathers, mothers, sons and daughters, doctors and farmers, in the city. Mr. Doi edited this footage and footage from August 2003 into a 55-minute documentary film, "Falluja." With no added music or voice-overs, the film is not intended to be a sheer record of facts.

About the filmmaker:

Toshikuni Doi is a Japanese independent journalist. He has published numerous articles in many first-class journals and has made scores of documentary films for news programs. He also has thirteen books published in Japan. Since 1985, he has visited the occupied territories many times and lived there for months, extensively reporting from Palestinian villages and refugee camps. In the spring of 2009, he completed film series, "Unheard voice - Palestine, Occupation and People," "based on his 17 years of coverage in Palestine and Israel. The final part of the series won three film awards, including the Waseda Journalism Award in Memory of Ishibashi Tanzan for public contribution, in Japan.


This event is co-sponsored by the Arab Film Festival and the Labor Video Project.
