A Fake Town in a Real War

In California’s Mojave Desert, the U.S. Army has built a billion-dollar virtual Iraq for the purpose of simulating warfare – complete with Iraqi exiles living in a mock Iraqi village. Tony Gerber and Jesse Moss talk about their new documentary about a fake town’s role in a real war, "Full Battle Rattle." It's now playing at Film Forum (209 West Houston Street) until July 23.
