God is on all sides, but not in Haditha.
On 19 November 2005, US Marines retaliated to a bombing attack on one of their vehicles by massacring 24 Iraqi non-combatants - innocent men, women and children from the town of Haditha, where the bombing took place.
Battle for Haditha takes a fictionalised look at the lead up to the event from all sides, following the marines, the insurgents and the civilians tragically caught in the middle. Featuring several ex-marines, director Nick Broomfield blurs the lines between documentary and drama, recreating a horrific event and carefully framing each party with an impartial lens, showing that there is never a clear distinction between good and evil.
Director Nick Broomfield's documentary His Big White Self and feature Ghosts appeared at MIFF in 2007.
