Story


Inspired by real events and the ever-emerging realities of an on-going war, "Redacted" explores the consequences of placing a group of young American soldiers into a morally ambiguous universe. Pushed to their very limits, the film portrays the tragic events surrounding a US army squad that targets and persecutes an innocent Iraqi girl and her family, culminating in a brutal rape and murder. The film addresses the innocent casualties of war and reveals the general helplessness surrounding the war in Iraq. A fictional version of the truth, "Redacted" forces the viewer to question the filters through which we see and accept events in our world. Ultimately, "Redacted" begs the question: Once we know the truth, what is the value of war and the worth of all its tragedies?

“..Brian De Palma's Redacted is essential viewing..”
by Rick Groen [Globe and Mail]
“..a troubling picture about the price we pay for standing still, and for not standing up..”
“..may well incite young Muslim men, already steeped in hatred toward America and the west, to act on their hatred..”
