"The War Tapes" comes to the Merrimack Library

On Tuesday. May 27 at 7 pm, the library will present a showing of The War Tapes, a 97-minute film which was one of the most talked about documentaries of 2006. In 2004 a group of soldiers from the New Hampshire National Guard were given cameras prior to their deployment to Iraq. Over 16 months, the unit filmed more than 800 hours of their own dangerous missions on the front lines. Director Deborah Scranton took that footage and turned it into the first war movie filmed by soldiers themselves. Winner of the Best Documentary Feature award at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival, this film will take you to the front lines of the Iraq War in a way no newscast can. You can read more about the film and the men who made it by visiting thewartapes.com

Seating is limited and reservations are recommended by calling 424-5021 or emailing.
