"This film depicts what investigative journalism can be at its best. Jeremy Scahill takes us on a journey into the dark and secret wars, the US is conducting worldwide, not even sparing their own citizens or children. Layer by layer Scahill exposes how the remaining superpower grossly violates national and international laws. He shows that the American "War on Terror" is indeed a war of terror, meaning a secret war that it is beyond democratic control. This investigation was conducted under great risks exposing an undercover army killing everywhere with impunity."

We have chosen "Dirty Wars" because of its outstanding filmmaking and also for its courageous line of questioning. There is humanity to this film which values a single life above and beyond any governing system. It provokes thought and leaves us moved well after it is over.
