HIWAR

HEARTS AND MINDS

Dir: Peter Davis

HIDDEN WARS OF DESERT STORM

Dir: Audrey Brohy

Narrated by British actor John Hurt, Hidden Wars, offers insights about the history of Western involvement in the Middle-East, about the origins of the Gulf war and about the very course of the war itself. It also reveals the hidden U.S. Government's political agenda behind the ongoing embargo strangling the population of Iraq and also about the not-so-mysterious Gulf war syndrome plaguing both veterans and local populations.
