500 Miles To Babylon, a film about Occupied Iraq
With film maker David Martinez
A one-hour documentary not about soldiers, not about governments, but about Iraqi civilians and a handful of independent journalists in a country turned into hell. A cinema verite narrative of daily life, disintegration, and the humour that ordinary people adapt when living in a warzone. Includes rare footage from inside Falluja, April 2004, and a Choubi music soundtrack provided by Sublime Frequencies. Unlike any Iraq movie you have seen!
Short video clips on opposition to the war and occupation in Afghanistan will also be shown.
Thursday, May 24th, 7pm, 4th Floor Resource Centre, St. Andrew’s Place, 111 Larch Street. * This is a wheel-chair accessible location.
Organized by the March 17th Anti-War Committee with the support of the Centre for Humanities Research and Creativity at Laurentian University.
