New World Murder

Canada, 1992 (MIFF 1993)

Director: Bruce Spangler

New World Murder chronicles, through the use of highly manipulated video footage, Gulf-War -related text and original footage, the U.S. media's "demonisation" of Saddam Hussein, its fetishisation and blatant marketing of U.S military hardware (with all its high tech promises of "bloodless" victory) and the total disregard shown for the immense suffering of the Iraqi people.
