Battlestar Iraqtica

Studio 360

In the 1960s and 70s, Hollywood turned to the Western to depict the racial, moral, and military issues of the Vietnam War. Today, directors and screenwriters are again grappling with war indirectly, through genres like fantasy and science fiction. Critics Lisa Schwartzbaum and Laura Miller show us how the war in Iraq gets addressed in the movie Children of Men and television's Battlestar Galactica. Produced by Eric Molinsky
