Film – “Control Room” hosted by Peter Galbraith, Thursday, March 31st at 7 PM

ControlRoom“Control Room”, directed by Egyptian-American filmmaker Jehane Noujaim, is one of the most powerful documentaries ever made about the second Iraq War. Taking place at the studios of Al Jazeera during the initial bombing of Iraq, it explores the interactions among Al-Jazeera reporters, American reporters, high ranking U.S. military officials and American soldiers, and reveals the disparate points of view stemming from each party’s limited realm of experience.

Peter Galbraith, who was involved in negotiations to draft an Iraqi constitution and authored “The End of Iraq: How American Incompetence Created a War Without End”, will introduce the film and take questions afterwards.
