My Country, My Country

My Country, My Country

2006, Other
Filmmaker Laura Poitras spent eight dangerous months documenting the life of an Iraqi medical doctor and his family as they struggled to maintain hope amidst the bombings, bloodshed, and military occupation. When she returned to America, Poitras was labeled with the highest possible threat rating from the Department of Homeland Security. Her resulting film, 'My Country, My Country,' is an intimate portrait of daily life in the war zone. NOW's David Brancaccio talks to Poitras about her eye-opening experiences working on what The Village Voice calls 'the most valuable piece of film to emerge about the war in all of its three years.'
