Screening: Dirty Wars

Posted by Caroline Lofts

If you enjoy a good conspiracy theory you’re going to want to see this film. Oscar nominated Dirty Wars is a documentary put together by investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill exposing the hidden truth behind America’s expanding covert wars.

The Mosaic Rooms host a screening on 5th February, Tickets are £5 and can be bought online or or by reserving a place and paying on the door rsvp@mosaicrooms.org

Investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill stumbles upon a US night raid gone badly wrong in a remote corner of Afghanistan, where a witness swears to having seen American soldiers digging bullets out of the bodies of dead pregnant women. Intent on exposing the truth, Scahill is drawn into a dark and disquieting world of covert operations underpinning the ‘War on Terror’—unknown to the public, and carried out across the globe by men who do not exist on paper and may never be held to account.

An explosive and daring piece of filmmaking, Scahill and director Rowley throw open a Pandora’s box of black ops, kill lists, drone strikes, and clandestine wings of the US military, for whom the war-torn Middle East has become a lawless Wild West.

If you missed the chance to see this film during its cinema release late last year now is your chance! In an era in which the ethics of state security grow thornier by the day, DIRTY WARS is essential viewing.
