The War Tapes

2006-Deborah Scranton: The first documentary about the war in Iraq seen from the point of view of the american soldiers. The documentary explains the day by day life of three soldiers who went to Iraqs war, their life before during and after this conflict.
The film won the prize for Best International Documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival in May 2006 and also Best International Documentary at BRITDOC in July 2006. The documentary was released for sale on DVD May 15, 2007. Moreover, it is possibly the most innovative result of the embedded reporter program. In this case the reporter did not go to Iraq, but provided cameras to the soldiers, and provided direction on filming to them via instant messaging and email.

It really shows the mental thoughs of the american soldiers who decided to be part of this important historic conflict, and also how their days and experiences were.
