TICKETS £5, BOOK NOW
Investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill stumbles upon a US night raid gone badly wrong in a remote corner of Afghanistan, where a witness swears to having seen American soldiers digging bullets out of the bodies of pregnant dead women. Intent on exposing the truth, Scahill is drawn into a dark and disquieting world of covert operations underpinning the ‘War on Terror’—unknown to the public, and carried out across the globe by men who do not exist on paper and may never be held to account.
An explosive and daring piece of filmmaking, Scahill and director Rowley throw open a Pandora’s box of black ops, kill lists, drone strikes, and clandestine wings of the US military, for whom the war-torn Middle East has become a lawless Wild West.
If you missed the chance to see this film during its cinema release late last year now is your chance! In an era in which the ethics of state security grow thornier by the day, DIRTY WARS is essential viewing.
