Director Mark Manning and Iraqi journalist Rana Al-Aiouby give a voice to the people most directly affected by the Iraq War in this documentary filmed shortly after that conflict's largest battle.
Only by getting a clear picture of the reality on the ground can the issue be humanized, and as the stories of survivors and the less fortunate play out right before our very eyes, we come to understand that the people who lost their lives in this conflict are not merely statistics, but mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters, just like the people we hold dearest in our daily lives. A joint production between American ad Iraqi filmmakers, The Road to Fallujah rejects the veneer perpetuated by Western media to highlight the complex realities of the battle of Fallujah.
Conversations with Iraqi citizens, resistance fighters, refugees, American soldiers, and proponents of peace such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Arun Gandhi make for a well-rounded discussion about a most controversial war.
