Nick Broomfield in discussion at Curzon Soho

Documentary-maker Nick Broomfield will be discussing his new film, Battle for Hadita, at the Curzon Soho next Sunday, 20 January at 12 pm.

About the film: In November 2005 in the Iraqi city of Haditha, 24 men, women and children were allegedly shot by four US Marines in retaliation for the death of a Marine killed by a roadside bomb. Broomfield’s latest work follows in the vein of his previous fiction film Ghosts in dramatizing real events, bringing the viewer uncomfortably close up to the action. Bursting with powerful imagery, Broomfield’s disturbingly realistic cinematography imagines the circumstances that provoked the slaughter, finding compassion and humanity amidst the brutality.
