Filmmaker Jehane Noujaim provides a behind-the-scenes look at the operations of Al-Jazeera -- the most prominent television news network in the Arab world -- during the war in Iraq. Through interviews with American journalists, journalists reporting for Al-Jazeera, and high-ranking U.S. military officials, Noujaim explores the nature of media bias, Al-Jazeera's relationship with the Arab community and the network's perception in the Western world.

"a tour de force"

--Joan Widdifield, Movie Magazine International

“shines its brightest light on a truth that war and warmongers so ferociously ignore”

-- Rick Groen, Globe and Mail

“proves that cinéma vérité is alive and well, and perhaps more potent and necessary than ever.”

- A. O. Scott, New York Times
