Toshikuni Doi's Fallujah
Wed Jun 14 15:32:40 EDT 2006
Apropos of this, there's another film on the same subject you may well know about already, The Dream of Sparrows, a 2005 film by Iraqi director Hayder Daffar. Inside the US it is available via Netflix. It's 85 minutes long, and quite intense. A member of the camera crew was shot and killed while filming part of this.
