Powerful doc that follows international activist Jo Wilding in her years of opposition to UK/US foreign policy towards Iraq. What distinguishes both the film and her actions is that the devastating impact of economic sanctions provides the awful foundation to the campaigns she and others were involved with. Too easily ignored, even by many of those against the invasion and occupation, the sanctions serve as an ongoing reference point for the suffering and oppression of Iraqi civilians. Guest’s film also includes unique and exclusive footage from inside the April 2004 siege of Fallujah, where Wilding served as witness to the brutalities of an illegal US strategy.
