Films on the brutality of War

Read Amy Goodman's interview with Alex Gibney in Democracy Now on his documentary "Taxi to the Dark Side", based on the story of Mr. Delawar an Afghan farmer and taxi driver who was in custody of American troops, detained and tortured to death. Tim Golden has a full report in The New York Times.
Read also Amy Goodman' s column on this film in Truthdig.

See this powerful film "Redacted" directed by Brian De Palm, and listen to his interview in Fresh Air. Redacted retells a true story about Abeer Qasim Hamza a 14-year old Iraqi girl who was raped and murdered by U.S. soldiers. Abeer's parents and her younger sister were also killed by the same soldiers. Watch a video clip....
