Raw look at Iraq war sobers Venice film fest

A US film laying bare the ugly reality of the Iraq war seared the big screen at the Venice film festival on Friday, with director Brian De Palma saying he hoped it would help end America’s military occupation.
“The pictures are what will stop the war,” De Palma told a news conference after the press screening of the movie, “Redacted”.Centering on the actual March 2006 rape and murder of a 14-year-old Iraqi schoolgirl by US soldiers who also slaughtered three family members, the film is a response to what De Palma sees as sanitised media accounts of the war seen in the United States.
