Meeting Resistance (First Run)
Molly Bingham and Steve Connors didn’t set out to make a film about those Iraqis who decided to defend their country’s honor by striking out at the U.S.-led coalition forces as part of an underground resistance movement. But once in Iraq after the war began, Bingham and Connors’ interviews led them to believe that the insurgency–as several insurgents say during the course of the film–will be finished once the U.S. troops leave. Don’t dismiss Meeting Resistance as mere propaganda, for it’s far deeper–with no histrionics, the directors capture a truer portrait of Iraq than anything on TV news or in newspapers.
