Friday Night Film Series: Aftermaths of War: THE FOG OF WAR
(dir. Errol Morris, 2003, 107 min)
This Oscar-winning and now classic documentary tells the story of America as seen through the eyes of the former U.S. Secretary of Defense, Robert S. McNamara. One of the most controversial and influential figures in world politics, McNamara takes us on an insider's view of the seminal events of the twentieth century. From the firebombing of 100,000 Japanese civilians in Tokyo in 1945 to the brink of nuclear catastrophe during the Cuban missile crisis to the devastating effects of the Vietnam War, The Fog of War examines the psychology and reasoning of the government decision-makers who send men and women to war.
