War Feels Like War

** The San Diego Public Library will host a documentary film showing of War Feels Like War on Tuesday, June 29 at 6:30 PM in the 3rd floor Auditorium of the Central Library located at 820 E Street. This is the story of an international group of journalists who refused to be “embedded.” Motivated by the desire to get the real story, they ventured onto the battlefield without military protection. They often found themselves reporting the stories that went uncovered in the wake of the triumphal columns of soldiers and embeds: civilian deaths, injuries, chaos in the streets, and a more mixed reception for the invaders than appeared in first reports. A discussion will be facilitated by Professor Tim Wulfemeyer after the screening. This event is FREE to the public.
