New Release - Dateline Afghanistan: Reporting The Forgotten War

Choices is pleased to announce the release of our new title, "Dateline Afghanistan: Reporting the Forgotten War"

As the United States and its allies engage in a continuing battle to free Afghanistan of its ties to the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, many journalists from around the world cover the ongoing conflict. Go inside the ranks of these brave men and women as they risk their lives to present the truth of what's really going on today. Veteran reporter and filmmaker Bill Gentile profiles noted journalists from The New York Times, the BBC, Time, and The Washington Post as well as others to reveal the daily personal and professional pressures they face. Learn how female reporters get the story despite the harsh restrictions placed on women in the country and how the U.S. military presence both aid and hinder journalists in their efforts to give fair and balanced coverage. Through stunning footage and first-hand accounts, audiences will get an up close look inside the media's role to report the issues and conflicts behind America's forgotten war.

Choices will release the DVD on May 8th. To learn more, click here.
