Storyline

One hundred fifty digital video cameras are distributed to everyday Iraqis, they encouraged to record their feelings about their life. They are also encouraged to pass the cameras along to get as many Iraqis across the country to participate in this project as possible. The cameras are in circulation from April to September 2004, shortly after the American bombing of Fallujah and the fall of the dictatorial regime of Saddam Hussein, the resulting footage which is compiled as this movie. Most of the subjects talk about issues around Hussein versus the Americans, and whether their lives and of Iraqis in general are better off now or then, their thoughts about democracy in general and how it applies to Iraq, and what they want to see for their future. A few also steer clear of politics altogether, they wanting to focus on happier things in their life. As the cameras move around the country, regional differences emerge, such as the Kurds of the north, who were persecuted by Hussein, ... Written by Huggo

Definitely a must-see, especially if you have relatives stationed in Iraq
17 January 2005 | by armymomSee all my reviews

I saw this, but I think the best commentary is from my son - who is currently stationed in Iraq. He'll be home soon - he's been there for over a year. I got this e-mail from him today:

----Original E-mail Message---- We have done so much good over here, but it is time for a break. I would like it if everyone could find a copy of a movie called "Voices of Iraq" and watch it and then pass it on to a friend and let them watch. "Voices of Iraq" is shot by the Iraqi people of the Iraqi people and allows you to hear how they feel about the war in Iraq. It was shot between MAR 04 and OCT 04 which is when we were doing most of our operations. I have been to several of the places in Baghdad where parts of the film were shot. It gave even me a new outlook at some of the stuff happening over here and I have been living it for the past 13 months. Please check out this video and let your friends know to watch it, particularly the ones who say we shouldn't have come over here or that we should leave now. Well I better get back to work. Hope to see you all soon.

Frank Novak SSG, USA --------------------- P.S. from armymom - he'll be going back again within the year, and my one nephew has been there and returned, and my other nephew is currently also over there. And yes, we support what they are doing, and their Commander-in-Chief.
