The Blood Of My Brother Trailer

Friday, December 8th, 2006

With , perhaps he’d do well to see , a new documentary about the Iraq war. This description is from :

The Blood Of My Brother takes the viewer behind the scenes of
the growing Shia insurgency with scenes of fighting and death on the
streets of Sadr City and Najaf. The Blood of My Brother brings war-torn
Iraq to life with intimate detail. This is the closest most will ever

fighter.

Saturday, July 22nd, 2006

This is a NOVA show examining the doctors, surgeons, and military staff of the 21st Combat Support
Hospital
in Iraq. The following copy is from :

The film follows the daily drama of life and death in a tented hospital in
the deserts north of Baghdad. Building a state-of-the-art hospital in
the dust and heat is a remarkable achievement, but it represents only
the start of the difficulties faced by the doctors and nurses of the
21st CSH. Relief at the lack of military casualties is soon replaced by
high drama and difficult ethical decisions as Iraqi victims arrive,
many of them children with horrific injuries caused by unexploded
weapons.

NOVA shows how innovations in battlefield medicine have
transformed the survival prospects of such casualties, and provides an
intimate story of the struggle for survival in a combat hospital. The show is 56 minutes long and contains graphic images.
