Last night I was lucky enough to be a panelist at the Scottish screening of “Dirty Wars” in Edinburgh. I also met the producers of the documentary, Anthony Arnove and Brenda Coughlin. Aside from being a great film, the cinema’s lobby contained some of the work of artist James Bridle, including a leaflet on how to make a “Drone Shadow“.
The rest of the UK screenings can be found on this link. Highly recommended (particularly in tandem with the book).
I have written summaries of the book here:
- Jeremy Scahill’s “Dirty Wars” – first impressions
- Dirty Wars: A Review, Part 1: The Rise of Neoconservatives
- Dirty Wars: A Review, Part 2: The Rise of JSOC
- Dirty Wars: A Review, Part 3: Lawfare, or “Operational Preparation of the Battlespace”
- Dirty Wars, A Review, Part 4: The Phoenix Rises from the Ashes (Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan)
- Blowback Somalia (Dirty Wars, a Review, Part 5)
