Synopsis

Investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill is pulled into an unexpected journey as he chases down the hidden truth behind America’s expanding covert wars.

It’s the dirty little secret of the War on Terror: all bets are off, and almost anything goes. We have fundamentally changed the rules of the game and the rules of engagement. Today drone strikes, night raids, and U.S. government–condoned torture occur in corners across the globe, generating unprecedented civilian casualties. Investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill (author of BLACKWATER: The Rise of the World’s Most Mercenary Army) traces the rise of the Joint Special Operations Command, the most secret fighting force in U.S. history, exposing operations carried out by men who do not exist on paper and will never appear before Congress. No target is off-limits for the JSOC “kill list,” even a U.S. citizen. Director Richard Rowley takes us on a chilling ride with whistle-blower Scahill. Dirty Wars is a battle cry for the soul and conscience of an America few of us know exists.

Join us on July 5th after the 7pm screening for a Panel Discussion with Miami’s Peace & Anti-War Coalition.  See details to the right.

Reviews

“The astonishingly hard-hitting “Dirty Wars” renders the investigative work of journalist Jeremy Scahill in the form of a ’70s-style conspiracy thriller.” – Variety

“Pessimistic, grimly outraged and utterly riveting …” – New York Times

“As a connect-the-dots narrative, “Dirty Wars” is eye-opening, a fierce argument that there are chilling ramifications to endless, vague aggression.” – Los Angeles Times

“Dirty Wars is essential viewing for anyone who wants to know how we wage war right now; it’s also a chilling prologue for what’s likely a global future of endless war and blowback.” – Village Voice
