Narrated by actor and activist Sean Penn, the film exhumes remarkable archival footage of official distortion and exaggeration from LBJ to George W. Bush, revealing in stunning detail how the Amer

A thousand civil wars. A war without end. The Fourth World War." We walked and these moments changed us. We saw the buildings burning and the pain in our neighbor's eyes.

A film about the American photographer James Nachtwey, about his motivation, his fears and his daily routine as a war photographer.

Ghosts of Abu Ghraib

Ghosts of Abu Ghraib

What was perhaps the most disgraceful episode in U.S. military history is examined in director Rory Kennedy's Ghosts of Abu Ghraib. By now there can't be many folks who aren't at least somewhat familiar with what went on at that notorious Baghdad prison in 2003, when U.S soldiers abused and mistreated-some would say tortured-Iraqi detainees (every one of whom was eventually released without charge
