Behind the Oscar Docs: Dirty Wars
Monday, February 17, 2014
Today we wrap up our annual series on Oscar nominated documentaries. We spoke with the filmmakers behind all five films over the past week: The Square (Wednesday); 20 Feet from Stardom (Thursday); An Act of Killing (Friday); Dirty Wars (Monday).
Jeremy Scahill and Richard Rowley talk about their new documentary Dirty Wars. Scahill, who is an investigative journalist (and editor with the new project The Intercept), is a writer for the documentary, based on his book Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield. Rowley is director, cinematographer, and editor for the film. Scahill and Rowley discuss their expose of the War on Terror.
