Kirkwood Ave., Bloomington"The Real War," a documentary film series about war and military occupation, debuts with the Bloomington screening of "Body of War".Bluntly and intimately, "Body of War" scrutinizes the day-to-day life of a disabled veteran, Tomas Young. Only 25 years old, Young was shot just days after arriving in Iraq. He now struggles to survive and speak out publicly against the war. The camera follows him for a period of months, passing through several important milestones.The Washington Post called Body of War "powerful." The New York Times said it was "impossible not to like." Time magazine: "superb documentary ... almost unbearably moving ..." Fox News called it "riveting."
"The Real War" film series is free and open to the public.
Discussion will follow the film showing.
