Synopsis

Comprising interviews with seven different men of varying rank about atrocities they committed (or ordered) during the Liberian Civil War, this frank and frequently disturbing documentary examines the nature of modern violence and an essentialist concept of warfare.

Our take

Reminiscent of Joshua Oppenheimer’s The Look of Silence, this celebrated first-person documentary film crucially visualizes essential questions about the human capacity for war. A dark, enthralling investigation into the living history of Liberia’s bloody internal conflict.
