De Palma hits up the war in this new intense DVD.
Redacted is coming to DVD on February 19. The disc will be priced at $26.98 SRP. The film stars Kel O'Neill, Ty Jones, Daniel Stewart Sherman, and Izzy Diaz.
A montage of stories about U.S. soldiers fighting in the Iraq conflict, focusing on the modern forms of media covering the war.
Inspired by real events and the ever-emerging realities of an on-going war, REDACTED explores the consequences of placing a group of young American soldiers into a morally ambiguous universe. Pushed to their very limits, the film portrays the tragic events surrounding a US army squad that targets and persecutes an innocent Iraqi girl and her family, culminating in a brutal rape and murder. The film addresses the innocent casualties of war and reveals the general helplessness surrounding the war in Iraq. A fictional version of the truth, REDACTED forces the viewer to question the filters through which we see and accept events in our world. Ultimately, REDACTED begs the question: Once we know the truth, what is the value of war and the worth of all its tragedies?
