Movie Info

In 2003, crack reporter Stephen Marshall of the Guerilla News Network took his news team and camera crews -- for 21 days -- to the frontlines of the U.S. war in Iraq, posing the questions "Why are we here?," "Is this war necessary?," "What is it helping to accomplish?," and "How are we pursuing the operation that lies before us?" A short time later, the team produced Battleground: 21 Days on the Empire's Edge -- a new home release featuring footage shot by Marshall and his team at the forefront of the conflict. As they travel from soldier to soldier, general to general, and camp to camp, Marshall and his unit dig up answers that shatter all myths and murky preconceptions surrounding the battle lines, breaking ideological and political barriers and helping audiences uncover the truth behind the war in Iraq as no news program or documentary has done before or since.

Add this engrossing and informative documentary by director Stephen Marshall to the growing list of films that reveal more about the war in Iraq than anything in the mainstream American news media.

If you're already against the war, the movie won't waste your time by preaching. It gives new perspective to both sides while adding weight to the arguments.

an honest to God documentary, refreshingly free of the agendas that usually give slant to so many of the propagandist films gaining notoriety in our current political climate
