Dirty Wars Out On 29th Nov

On Friday, 29 November 2013, the Sundance award-winning documentary Dirty Wars, featuring the journalist Jeremy Scahill, releases in theaters across Britain, from BRITDOC Films (http://www.britdoc.org) and Picturehouse DOCS.Journalist Glenn Greenwald calls Dirty Wars “one of the most important political films of the last 20 years” with “remarkable, news-breaking revelations” and author John le Carré describes it as “gripping, compelling and totally convincing.” The New York Times named the film a Critics’ Pick and called it “utterly riveting.”

I’m proud to be a producer of this film, many years in the making, which has received critical acclaim in the United States as well as a wide theatrical US release this summer, on more than 150 screens.

In late November and early December, I’ll be joining Jeremy Scahill, a producer and writer of the film, as well as author of the bestselling book of the same name (Serpent’s Tail, May 2013), Brenda Coughlin, my corpoducer, and director and editor Rick Rowley, for a launch tour of the film. We’re also partnering with our allies at Reprieve UK and with other organizations, journalists, and advocates for the launch tour.

Tickets are now available for the theatrical run at Picturehouse Cinemas, starting with the premiere at the Ritzy Brixton on Friday, 29 November, with Jeremy there in person for an audience discussion after the showing. Brenda and I will be there, as well.

We’ll also be at other London venues and in theaters in Bath, Brighton, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Exeter, Liverpool, Oxford, and York. We hope to add other theaters soon.

Reporting on a US night raid gone wrong in an Afghan village, journalist Jeremy Scahill discovers a cover-up by an elite military unit. What follows is an international investigation into America’s expanding covert wars.

    If Robert Redford and Sundance like it then that would raise red flags for me. I would assume that it’s a piece of propaganda.
