Compiled from over 2,000 digital video recorders given to Iraqis between April and September of 2004, Voices of Iraq is an intimate look at wartime Iraq rarely seen outside of the war zone. Presenting a decidedly neutral viewpoint, this documentary focuses on common day-to-day life within the country as invading military forces continue to polarize the citizen's opinions of the invasion and the devastation it has left behind. With startling footage of casualties across the board, Voices of Iraq offers an unusual glimpse into the nightmare of war as seen through the eyes of those who must persevere in the midst of it.
