American director James Longley spent more than two years filming in Iraq to create this stunningly photographed, poetically rendered documentary of the war-torn country as seen through the eyes of Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds. Winner of Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Editing awards in the 2006 Sundance Film Festival documentary competition, the film was also awarded the Grand Jury Prize at the 2006 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.
ooooh i saw that movie! it was sad, but really well made. i hated that boy's uncle. he deserved mahdi's garbage can treatment.
i'll have to add this one to nellie and i's movie list! we just got The Ground Truth from netflicks yesterday and are probably watching it tonight. i always love your movie suggestions!
Mahdi: That man in the film was the boy's boss at the mechanic shop. And yes... he seserved multiple punches to his kidneys.Photoflo: That would be cool if we could arrange that. We would have to get the university to purchase an institutional copy of the film... i can lobby for that.Lexi: I'm glad you watch the movies i reccommend :)
we LOVED The Ground Truth.....it's the kind of thing i want to go put on on the wall of TVs at Sears or something!
i sent the Assistant Director of the CMES an email today
