THE WAR YOU DON'T SEE – A DOCUMENTARY FILM BY JOHN PILGER

 

The film is a powerful and timely investigation into the media's role in war. It traces the history of "embedded" and independent reporting from the carnage of World War I to the destruction of Hiroshima, and from the invasion of Vietnam to the current war in Afghanistan. As weapons and propaganda are ever more sophisticated, the very nature of war has developed into an "electronic battlefield". But who is the real enemy today?

JOHN PILGER is an Australian-British war correspondent, frontline war reporter and regulatory contributor to international media. An incisive and rare critic of mainstream media, Pilger is known for his humane eyewitness reporting. He has contributed to ITV Network, the Guardian and the New Statesman

He is the recipient of multiple awards, including Britain's highest award for journalism, twice, and television academy awards in both the UK and the United States.

The film is produced by Dartmouth Films.

Thematic presentation by Antranig Bedrossian
