Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers
A Robert Greenwald Film
Who's getting killed. And who's making a killing.
Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers is the story of what happens to everyday Americans when corporations go to war. Acclaimed director Robert Greenwald (Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism, and Uncovered: The War on Iraq) takes you inside the lives of soldiers, truck drivers, widows and children who have been changed forever as a result of profiteering in the reconstruction of Iraq. Iraq for Sale uncovers the connections between private corporations making a killing in Iraq and the decision makers who allow them to do so.
NEW YORK TIMES: "a horrifying catalog of greed, corruption and incompetence"
LA TIMES: "might unite viewers across all political spectra"
HOUSTON CHRONICLE: "Greenwald tackled a tough subject that Congress won't face"
LA DAILY NEWS: "Iraq for Sale is one Greenwald film with an agenda that maybe everybody can get behind. Conservatives seeing "Iraq for Sale" can seethe at the atrocious waste of taxpayer dollars. Liberals can decry the unprecedented depth and breadth of privatization in Iraq. "
VILLAGE VOICE: "Both a trenchant indictment of war profiteering in Iraq and a memorial for those not included in the military's death toll, Iraq for Sale is a work of intense disillusionment; the wounds are fresh and the testimony of civilian contractors and their bereaved family members is appropriately raw."
TV GUIDE: "carefully researched, and crucial to fully understanding the Iraqi/American enterprise."
Brave New Films are both funded and distributed completely outside corporate America. Over 3000 people donated to make Iraq for Sale, and it is up to average Americans to distribute it. Over 1300 screenings are happening all over the US and the world in October and November in houses, churches, schools, community centers and theaters.
