*About:* In 2004, Fallujah in Iraq became the theater of a major showdown
between the American soldiers and the Iraqi insurgents. But even though the
sounds of this harsh battle have died down a long time ago the consequences
are only showing now. And they are of the toxic kind. Babies are born with
malformations, kids are affected with leukemia and cancer has multiplied
tenfold. The situation reminds the one of 1945 post atomic Hiroshima.

Meanwhile, in the USA, the marines who took part in the battle are
developing strange diseases.


What really happened in Fallujah?
Which weapons were used? White phosphorus? Depleted uranium?
Has a generation of Iraqis been sacrificed?

Director *Feruat Alani* is an Iraqi investigative journalist and will join
us for the screening and discussion.
