Human Terrain

Critically acclaimed and recipient of the Audience Award at the Festival Dei Popoli in Florence the film provides a unique investigation of the United States’ wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Seeking to understand 'why they hate us', the US military adopts a new strategy of cultural awareness to win over the hearts and minds of the Iraqi and Afghan people. Controversy erupts when academics embed with combat troops and the war comes home to the university. Human Terrain is collaboration between MIchael and David Udris and James Der Derian and is currently in domestic and international distribution.
