Movie Info

For the gut-wrenching documentary exposé Meeting Resistance, co-directors and journalists Molly Bingham and Steve Connors sought to rip the lid off of Middle Eastern insurgency by traveling into the streets and back alleys of Iraq and confronting anti-American resistance soldiers face-to-face, cameras rolling. From that vantage point (over the course of ten months), Connors and Bingham begin to explore the motivations, ideological convictions, goals and political structures of eight individuals who have vowed to go head-to-head against the presence of the United States in Iraq. In so doing, the filmmakers challenge and in some cases destroy preconceived American stereotypes of Iraqi insurgents and provide an all-too-rare glimpse of the U.S. Iraqi occupation from the other side of the political fence.
