War films can help define a generation and offer important glimpses into our history. Providing a real and raw depiction of the struggles and tribulations our country has faced, sometimes the truth is often brutal and heartbreaking. But awareness as illuminated by film, can be a very powerful method of spreading knowledge and pride.
I recently had the chance to sit down with Luke Moran, the director, writer and star of "Boys of Abu Ghraib". The film marks his directorial debut and undertaking a project on this scale, is very amibitious for a first entry.
Serving as a microscope into the true 2004 events, the film explores meaningful themes of brotherhood, compassion, responsibility, family, betrayal and depth. It's also told from a unique perspective and has an authentic narrative, offering a very intimate portrayal of the experience that many soldiers have faced at war, and the many layers and lives it touches.
