Filmmaker James Longley spent almost three years in Iraq gathering over 300 hours of footage of daily life. The result was the documentary Iraq in Fragments, which is now showing at the Sundance Film Festival. This week on War News Radio, we talk to the director about his unique cinematic perspective on life in Iraq.
We also look into what the U.S. Army is doing to enhance communication between American troops and Iraqis.
And, as part of a new occasional series on American soldiers, we talk to a Muslim Marine about his experience in Iraq.
Finally, in light of Hamas’s victory in the Palestinian elections, we revisit the question of what terrorism can hope to accomplish.
These stories, plus the week’s news, from War News Radio.
