“The single best document (book, film or article) you could see” on the war in Iraq. – John Fisher Burns, the New York Times’ Baghdad bureau chief and two-time Pulitzer Prize winning foreign correspondent.
Straight from the front lines in Iraq, THE WAR TAPES is the first war movie filmed by soldiers themselves.
This is Operation Iraqi Freedom as filmed by Sergeant Steve Pink, Sergeant Zack Bazzi and Specialist Mike Moriarty. Steve is a wisecracking carpenter who aspires to be a writer. Zack is a Lebanese-American university student who loves to travel and is fluent in Arabic. Mike is a father who seeks honor and redemption. Each leaves a woman behind – a girlfriend, a mother and a wife. Through their candid footage, these men open their hearts and take us on an unforgettable journey, capturing camaraderie and humor along with the brutal and terrifying experiences they face.
This is not reality TV, and it’s not mainstream media war coverage. This is real war. You can feel the difference from the first frame of The War Tapes.
The War Tapes is filmed by citizen soldiers telling their own stories, and
it captures the everyday aspects of war in a way only a soldier could communicate.
The film, directed by Deborah Scranton, and produced by Robert May and Steve James,recently won the award for Best Documentary at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival.
