Meeting Resistance: a film about Iraq's heroes
What would you do if your country was invaded? So runs the opening line of the synopsis to this new documentary about the Iraqi Resistance.
Filmed when westerners could still move around Iraq, Meeting Resistance shows the human side to the resistance by concentrating on ten individuals who together are presented as being typical of the movement that has fought capitalism's dogs of war to a standstill.
What would you do if your country was invaded? Hopefully you would behave as these heroes have behaved. Put aside your differences and get the foreigners out. Leave everything else on the back burner until your country is liberated.
