Targets: Reporters in Iraq

Targets: Reporters in Iraq

| 47 min

Since 2004, the war in Iraq has become impossibly dangerous for journalists. Few remain there and fewer still venture outside the Green Zone or work unembedded. In this powerful documentary we meet some reporters and photographers who are covering events.

Among them are Canadian Scott Taylor and Turkish journalist Zeynep Tugrul, who were kidnapped and tortured by an Al-Queda-related group in Tal Afar, one of the most hazardous spots in Iraq. They managed to talk their way out! We also meet Iraqis covering the war and see how the violence against reporters affects them as well.

Several award-winning photographers from The New York times, The Guardian and Newsweek contribute their incredible stories. Indeed, the targeting of media professionals in Iraq has changed war journalism itself.
