81. IRAQ IN FRAGMENTS
dir. James Longley
world premiere 2006
U.S. release 2006
Because Iraq at long last ceases to be a visual, conceptual, and discursive impasse, springing to life as a
deeply striated space that we sorely need to study. And Longley's color-rich images and evocative sounds make us want
to study it. And his solitary, revelatory brio in bringing off this film throws down the gauntlet to all the journalists who don't even try.
