Directed by Jehane Noujaim, co-director of Startup.com, Control Room documents the Arab news network Al-Jazeera's coverage of the war in Iraq. The movie “explores how Truth is gathered, presented, and ultimately created by those who deliver it.” Watch the trailer.
Scheduled for release in Chicago on June 11 at the Landmark Century in Lincoln Park.
i can't wait to see this movie. i wasn't crazy about startup.com- thought the premise was good but the guys were too hammy. i liked 'e-dreams' better. i recently watched a doc. i had read about:'uncovered- the whole truth about the iraq war' by robert greenwald- don't bother with it. it might be interesting if you are in 1st grade or never heard of rumsfeld! back to 'control room', i keep reading great things about this movie and the trailer is intriguing. let's see it that weekend!
