Originally released in 2004, War Feels Like War is a British film which for three months follows five reporters and photographers who managed to circumvent the military media control in order to gain access to a different perspective of the Iraq War.
As the world witnessed the Coalition of the willing sweep through Iraq, some journalists in Kuwait took it upon themselves to travel in their wake, witnessing the impact the war was having on the innocent. This is not simply a film about the Iraq War, but about war in general. It is not just about journalists, but about human beings.
The journalists include best-selling author P.J. O’Rourke, who was working for ABC Radio, as well as reporters and photographers for news operations ranging from Poland’s Radio Zet to Stephanie Sinclair, a photographer for the Chicago Tribune.
