> The first installment in Kino21's series that explores soldiering  
> and war
> from the point of view of those on the ground, Iraqi Short Films is a
> compilation of short videos shot in the midst of war by American and
> British soldiers, Iraqi militia members, and corporate workers.  
> These are
> not "films" per se. They are a mix of slices of life recorded on video
> (many shot while firing on the enemy or being fired upon), pithy  
> propaganda
> pieces, and soldiers' visions of war as just another music video.  
> They are
> crudely shot fragments, some rife with raw fear, some gloating over
> momentary victory. Filmed mainly as records, for friends, family, or  
> fellow
> fighters, and at one point or another put on the web or on local
> television, the pieces were culled by Andrizzi over several months.  
> Ranging
> from the banal to the intense, from the shocking to the darkly  
> humorous,
> Andrizzi's compilation depicts war as experienced, articulated, and  
> vividly
> imagined by those actually fighting and dying in it.

> Post-screening discussion with Anjali Kamat, Producer, Democracy Now!
