INCIDENT IN NEW BAGHDAD

Documentary

In 2010, WikiLeaks released a grainy video recorded from the gunsight camera of a US Army attack helicopter. The footage depicts the violent deaths of two Iraqi journalists, along with at least eight other mostly unarmed individuals on the streets of Baghdad. This doc examines what happened that day from the perspective of an American infantryman whose life was profoundly changed by his experiences.
