Description

When Iraq veteran Ross Caputi set out with his unit for the second siege of Fallujah, he partook in one of the largest and bloodiest operations in the Iraq War, an attack that left the city decimated. Newspapers celebrated Caputi and his fellow soldiers as heroes, books were written about their mission against terrorism—but Caputi’s conscience told him something different. Unwilling to accept the mainstream media’s portrait of his experience, he took up a camera and set out across the US to learn the truth about that day, and what the American people know about it. This is one of the most uncomfortable films you’ll see at the fest, and you won’t be able to take your eyes off of it. In Person: Director Ross Caputi.
