The War In Iraq: An Imperfect Criteria For The Documentary Film Maker To Create A Voice For War-Stricken Humans
Voices of Iraq and Occupation Dreamland, two films about the Iraq war during the 2000s decade, have a common theme in them that Stuart Franklin and Johnathan Kahana highlight in their books: to use video and photography as a means to preserve that which defines and demonstrates the things directors of the film, and photography want to preserve and note as extraordinary. I believe that the director’s mission was to give the people of Iraq a global voice. If one looks at the film from start to finish, the viewer will see that the filmmakers went above and beyond the call of duty just to give Iraqis the chance to film themselves and be a part of a historical film. I believe that this is the essence of documentary films, at least one essential force of the American film renaissance. Furthermore, I assert that films such as Voices of Iraq are a channel and a platform for people in war and poverty-stricken countries where no one there is taking the time to document them as powerfully as Voices of Iraq does!
