Featured in Tribeca Film Festival's Best Documentary, Incident in New Baghdad, ETHAN McCORD enlisted in the US Navy in response to 9/11. Wanting to be closer to the action, he moved to the Army, and in 2007, found himself in the middle of the ground war in Baghdad.
Ethan literally walked onto the scene filmed from an Apache helicopter just after 12 Iraqi civilians had been shot to death 1.5 miles away. He can be seen in the Wikileaks film Collateral Murder, released one year ago, rescuing two children who survived the attack.*
Ethan's story of coming to grips with the Army's rules and the loss of civilian life brought him to say, "the thing I couldn't live without in Iraq was my own humanity." Ethan will share his story. Students especially invited.
*Collateral Murder, a 15-minute film, will be screened at the beginning of this program.
