Well rounded documentary. Very informative and eye opening. Recommended to anybody who is interested in this topic as well as current events in our world.
I've seen many documentaries in the past, and as this one was produced by university students, it understandably had an "amateur" feel to it, although that doesn't mean that it wasn't well produced. For what it's worth, this was a well rounded documentary, and for the most part, covered what the average viewer would hope to know or want to know about what is happening in the front lines of Iraq. Personally, I felt as though there wasn't enough footage and information while the group of students was in Iraq. There was a lot of time, that I believe was wasted in the beginning of the documentary, while the group of students were preparing for their trip. Most of that time wasn't important to the overall theme that was portrayed from the documentary, and would have been best left out to leave room for more of what was happening in Iraq. I felt as though some parts of the documentary were a bit silly, (the back and forth conversation between one of the girls in the group and someone else about putting a hat on, for example), and took away from the serious and informative tone and message trying to be received by the viewer. The camera work was fine for the most part. Shots looked good, but my only concern would be the inconsistency between different parts of the documentary, when shot with a different camera, or the color was off, etc. The overall tone portrayed by the documentary was on point and as a viewer, I could feel exactly what was meant to be sent, emotionally. The music was very well chosen as well, and worked well with the visuals. There were some parts of the documentary, especially when it was windy out, where it was harder to hear people talking, although it wasn't too bad, and didn't take away from the overall experience. Including the shots of the little kids playing, learning at school, and the overall living conditions of families in Iraq definitely helped in setting the tone delivered from the documentary. As a viewer, I was definitely saddened by what I saw, and the way the content was delivered was done very well.
Overall, this was a good documentary. It was nowhere near bad, but it could have also been a lot better. It has a good balance between delivering information, and delivering an emotional response to what is happening to those in Iraq. From the point of view of a film-maker and producer, there were some things I would have done differently to maximize the amount of information that a viewer received, but that's just me, and in my opinion, it's quite subjective. From the point of view of a viewer, I definitely enjoyed watching this. My eyes were opened to the truths and horrors of what is happening in Iraq, while most of the world turns a blind eye to it.
I would definitely recommend this documentary to anybody who is interested in this topic as well as current events in our world. As I said above, #UnitedWeWin has a good balance between information and emotional connection and response. This documentary is definitely one that should be watched by many.
