Why We Fight is the provocative new documentary from acclaimed filmmaker Eugene Jarecki (The Trials of Henry Kissinger) and winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. Named after the series of short films by legendary director Frank Capra that explored America’s reasons for entering World War II, Why We Fight surveys a half-century of military conflicts, asking how and answering why a nation of, by and for the people has become the savings-and-loan of a government system whose survival depends on an Orwellian state of constant war. The Why We Fight DVD features interviews and observations by a ‘who’s who’ of military and Washington insiders including Senator John Mc- Cain, Gore Vidal, and Dan Rather. Beginning with President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s prescient 1961 speech warning of the rise of the ‘military industrial complex’, Why We Fight moves far beyond the headlines of various American military operations to the deeper questions of why America seemingly is always at war. What are the forces political, economic, and ideological that drive us to clash against an ever- changing enemy? Just why does America fight? Unforgettable, powerful and at times disturbing, Why We Fight on DVD will challenge viewers long after the last fade-out.
