"Iraq for Sale"
Iraq for Sale
Dir. Robert Greenwald, 2006, 75 min.
The story of what happens to everyday Americans when corporations go to war. One man documentary film studio Robert Greenwald (Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, Outfoxed) takes you inside the lives of soldiers, truck drivers, widows and children who have been changed forever as a result of profiteering in the reconstruction of Iraq. Iraq for Sale uncovers the connections between private corporations making a killing in Iraq (Blackwater, Halliburton/KBR, CACI and Titan) and the decision makers who allow them to do so.
WINTER SOLDIERS: Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan (January 20th - 27th & 30th at the Maysles Cinema). With Winter Soldiers: Iraq and Afghanistan, the veteran and active duty led inquiry of 2008 and its inspiration - the original Winter Soldier Investigation of 1971 (and the film by the same name) - as bookends, this series explores the soldier's point of view in these conflicts as well as their role in the genesis of any critique of these wars.
