Wallingford Neighbors for Peace and Justice - “Friday Night At The Meaningful Movies”
FILM: OCCUPATION: DREAMLAND (82 min, Ian Olds and Garrett Scott, 2005). OCCUPATION: DREAMLAND is an unflinchingly candid and painfully open portrait of a squad of American soldiers deployed in the doomed Iraqi city of Falluja during the winter of 2004.
full description & details:
The film chronicles the daily grind of young recruits as they patrol an environment of low-intensity conflict creeping steadily towards catastrophe. The film documents the city's waning stability before the final series of military assaults began on Fallujah in the spring of 2004 that effectively destroyed it. This is a film that ALL Americans must see.
In the week before the third anniversary of the U.S. occupation of Iraq, this film intensively focuses public attention and compassionate response to the needs of troops in Iraq, both those serving now and those that have returned. Open community discussion follows the film. For more information on the film, please go to: www.occupationdreamland.com
