SOUNDTRACK TO WAR

by Director/Producer/Cinematographer

George Gittoes

American culture came to Iraq wired into its tanks and helicopters — a live soundtrack to war with lyrics such as “Let the Bodies Hit the Floor” that are forever linked to the violent events they accompanied. Gittoes’ film takes us into spontaneous performances creating music in the hell of war. Gittoes travelled alone to Iraq four times between March 2003 and May 2004 to capture the footage for this documentary and images for his multimedia art practice.
