Hey Rootsters,
I'm passing this along from a friend of mine who works on the "The War
Tapes," a documentary about a New Hampshire National guard unit's
year-long deployment to Iraq. The film follows three soldiers and is
made up of their video diaries and commentary. The film is a startling
look at what daily life is like for American soldiers in Iraq and
though it is non-partisan, it's clear from the movie how poorly this
war is being managed and, as a result, how much our government asks of
our men and women in uniform. I saw "The War Tapes" a couple of months
ago and I highly recommend you check it out.

Best,
Matt

This extraordinarily important film is the first documentary to
chronicle
the war through the eyes of those Soldiers who lived it. Director
Deborah
Scranton and Producer Chuck Lacy gave video cameras to a group of
Soldiers
from the New Hampshire National Guard prior to their deployment, and
this
film is the result. Awarded "Best Documentary" at the Tribeca Film
Festival
last month, this film is a must-see for anyone who seeks to better
understand the war, and its impact on the men and women sent to fight
it.
Check out the Trailer here: http://thewartapes.com/trailer or on the
