Robert Greenwald has our enduring admiration for his low-budget, high-impact documentaries on some of the nation's most-obsessed-over subjects, including Wal-Mart ("Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Prices") and Fox News ("Outfoxed"). While his movies enjoy theatrical releases, they really take off as timely DVD phenomena; his use of the medium is like that of a modern day pamphleteer. And his successes in the past have been huge; his 2003 "Uncovered: The War on Iraq," which exposed the deceptions that went into selling the invasion of Iraq to the public, sold well over 100,000 copies.
His latest, "Iraq for Sale," exposes the great extent to which corporations are profiteering -- with government help -- from the war. Brave New Films is sponsoring local house screenings of the film, which you can learn more about here. You can also purchase the film for $12.95 here.
