Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield

 Back from Sundance
The Dirty Wars film team recently returned from the film's world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, where Dirty Wars won the Cinematography Award for U.S. Documentary. We were truly honored by the fantastic response from audiences, critics, the jury, and fellow filmmakers. Here's a sample:

From the critics
"Filed from the frontlines of the war on terror, documentarian Richard Rowley's astonishingly hard-hitting Dirty Wars renders the investigative work of journalist Jeremy Scahill in the form of a '70s-style conspiracy thriller.... This jaw-dropping, persuasively researched pic has the power to pry open government lockboxes." —Variety

"A vital, gripping film.... [Dirty Wars​'] narrative drive offers a compelling package for viewers numbed by one news report after another about civilian deaths and secret hit lists. Its tough investigative tone and surprisingly stylish photography enhance cinematic appeal for a doc that merits theatrical exposure." —Hollywood Reporter
