March 2003. American and British forces invade Iraq with the intention of toppling dictator Saddam Hussein, and the Gulf War erupts. Alongside the countless troops, thousands of journalists, from every part of the world, descend upon the region in order to secure potentially career-making coverage. From the director of Startup.com comes this bold and revealing documentary about Al-Jazeera, the first commercial non-state-owned Arab satellite channel. Demonstrating how radically different versions of 'the truth' of the Gulf conflict have been told to viewers the world over, this extraordinary film raises difficult and disturbing questions about the function of propaganda in Western society.
