Barbara Marheineke - Green gold

13:10, 2012, Narrative
Why has the USA waged two wars with Iraq within only a few years?
Why have weapons of mass destruction-the reason for the most recent war in Iraq-never been found, and why are American special units still there?

In the film “Green Gold”, secret recordings are uncovered which reveal the real motive behind the invasion. The film shows how an accidental discovery is to revolutionize global energy policy and how the mutation of a desert gecko caused both Iraq wars.

Barbara Marheineke`s short film deals with media manipulation and uses media coverage of the Iraq wars as an example: truth and lies are sometimes so closely tied that at a certain point anything seems possible...
