Fighting the Iraq War in California

Gitlin has a few suggestions: "Who are the four million refugees and what are their lives like? Or a forensic documentary, How many people have been killed? How do you get an assessment of how many people die in a war? I'd be interested in being taken behind the scenes, looking at the work of performing that calculation."

John Sinno, the coproducer and distributor of "Iraq in Fragments," has a film he's just finished. "It's a satirical comedy about the war on terror, called 'Zombies of Mass Destruction.' It's basically about a town in the U.S. that gets invaded by a zombie virus, and an Iranian father and his daughter get blamed because people think it's a terrorist attack."

Sinno is just beginning to "scope out the festivals" for his film, hoping, no doubt that a fictionalized, satirical tale about the war on terror will be more palatable for moviegoers than the often gritty world of the documentary filmmaker.
