SPECIAL EVENT FOLLOWING THE FILM

We invite you to join us in a unique opportunity to speak directly to the people of Iraq!

Immediately following the  screening of the film,
we plan to facilitate a video conference with Iraqis, live from Iraq and surrounding refugee countries. In the tradition of the South Africa Truth & Reconciliation Commission, which was chaired by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a prominent character in The Road to Fallujah, we plan to facilitate a process of reconciliation and peace between our two cultures through this interactive dialogue. The audience will be able to ask questions, hear updates on the situation in Iraq, and discuss positive ways to move forward for both countries. (Video-conferencing contingent upon security and technology concerns for our Iraqi producers on the day of the event)


Film Description:  The Road to Fallujah follows the story of filmmaker Mark Manning, who became the only westerner to live with the people of Fallujah, Iraq immediately following the November 2004 battle that destroyed their holy city. With unique access to both sides of the conflict, the film gives a voice to the people directly involved, humanizes the issues, and breaks through the myths that perpetuate the violence. Through a clear presentation of the reality on the ground, The Road to Fallujah exposes the human perspective of U.S. policy in the Middle East and offers alternative solutions to war.
