New Video in the PRC Library…
Body of War: The Story of an Anti-War Hero DVD Docurama Films, 2008. 87 minutes. www.bodyofwar.com
Body of War is a documentary featuring Tomas Young, who was paralyzed after serving in Iraq for just one week. The film contrasts the hardship of Tomas and his family learning to deal with paralysis with the legislative process that led up to the invasion of Iraq in 2002. The motives of the conflict in Iraq are questioned as Young joins an anti-war group. He also supports his younger brother who enlists and also gets sent off to Iraq.
