9/11 Trilogy part 1: My Country, My Country

Today we watched My Country, My Country which the first film of Laura Poitras' documentaries in her 9/11 Trilogy.

Laura Poitras spent over eight months working on her own and for some time following a US Army Civil Affairs team during the elections in Iraq filming the documentary. The film shows life in Iraq for average Iraqis under U.S. occupation. Poitras focuses primarily on Dr. Riyadh al-Adhadh, an Iraqi medical doctor, father of six and Sunni political candidate.

It's a really good documentary and certainly shows a very interesting side of things in Iraq that is not often broadcast in the media in that it shows how badly the US made a mess if things in Iraq. This isn't conspiracy theory stuff, it's all presented factually with no interpretation on things.
