The U.S. occupation has had horrible effects on the Iraqi population, but Fallujah has suffered more than any other Iraqi city. Fallujah is to the Occupation of Iraq, what My Lai was to the Vietnam War, and what Hiroshima and Nagasaki were to World War II. Fallujah is the skeleton in our closet that we cannot hide from.
Join with people people who were there to remember, to learn about the ongoing impact of the occupation and to commit to actions to both repair some of the devestation and to prevent such attrocities from occuring again.
The next film in the “Examining Modern Life” series, sponsored by the AFSC, concerns U.S. soldiers and the realities faced abroad, as well as once they returned home to American soil.
Film synopsis: “The filmmaker's subjects are patriotic young Americans - ordinary men and women who heeded the call for military service in Iraq - as they experience recruitment and training, combat, homecoming, and the struggle to reintegrate with families and communities.
