Dirty Wars, Documentary From Acclaimed Writer Jeremy Scahill


Dirty Wars

A remarkable anti-war film will be showing, and even more remarkably, in big mainstream movie theaters. Dirty War may be one of the best educational outreach opportunities the peace movement has had in a long time.

Dirty Wars won the Cinematography Award for U.S. Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival 2013 and, recently, the Grand Jury Prize at the Boston Independent Film Festival. Variety calls it “jaw-dropping … [with] the power to pry open government lockboxes.” The Sundance jury said it is “one of the most stunning looking documentaries [we’ve] ever seen.”

Experience being in a big theater full of people who cheer for the same things you cheer for. People who see this film are going to be outraged by our wars, are going to understand that the wars make us less safe, and just might be ready to do something about it.
