On Sunday, June 23, following the 7:35 pm screening, a discussion will be led by writer/producer Jeremy Scahill via Skype.
Investigative reporter and fearless whistle-blower Jeremy Scahill traces the rise of the most secret and elite fighting force in U.S. history, the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), exposing covert operations carried out by men who do not exist on paper and will never appear before Congress. No target is off-limits for the JSOC “kill list,” even U.S. citizens. DIRTY WARS is a battle cry for the soul and conscience of an America few of us know exists. (Synopsis excerpted from Sundance Film Festival Program Guide)
“[The] astonishingly hard-hitting DIRTY WARS renders the investigative work of journalist Jeremy Scahill in the form of a '70s-style conspiracy thriller.” —Rob Nelson, Variety
