Revealing Look at Daily Life in Iraq

This documentary, “Iraq: The Hidden Story” looks at the “images missing from our television screens.” This graphic footage, showcasing the carnage and huge loss of life that are a daily part of Iraqi life, never makes it onto the network news. Several different Iraqi citizens are interviewed, voicing their concerns as well as sharing how they cope with living in such a hostile environment. Narrator Jon Snow notes that, one of the major groups of people not given full access to the brutalities of life in Iraq is the people from the countries that are currently occupying Iraq. He muses, “…If they had such a full account, would they support what was being done in their name?” This documentary runs about 50 minutes and contains graphic content.
