The war campaign

Boris Benjamin Bertram, Denmark, 2013

59 min.DK/Documentary

A documentary and a genuine political thriller. The threads of the complicated international maneuvering that led to the war in Iraq are gathered. Centrally-placed witnesses and whistleblowers take us into the very offices where the campaigns were conceived, intelligence estimates adjusted, and speeches written. These witnesses were insiders to the game but now feel moved to show the world the way they believe the global community was manipulated. The film uncovers the way the governments of Denmark, USA and the UK massaged political and popular opinion in their own countries.
