Movie Info

This film is a documentary, nominated for an Academy Award, of the destructive fires set by Iraqi soldiers at the close of the Persian Gulf War. In defeat, Saddam Hussein remained defiant, committing one last war atrocity: setting fire to oil wells in Kuwait, the land his troops invaded. The video presents graphic film footage that shows the magnitude of the fires and the immense destruction and waste that resulted. Scorched earth and terrible air pollution were Hussein's war legacy to the Middle East. The film shows the heroic efforts of thousands of firefighters to contain the blaze.
