The Directorate for Special Operations and Low-Intensity Conflict cordially requests the presence of your company in the Pentagon Screening Room on August 27th, 2003:

"How to win a battle against terrorism and lose the war of ideas. . . . Children shoot soldiers at point blank range. Women plant bombs in cafes. Soon the entire Arab population builds to a mad fervor. Sound familiar? The French have a plan. It succeeds tactically, but fails strategically. To understand why, come to a rare showing of this film."

Recorded live at the Moore College of Art in April 2016. Music by Ennio Morricone and Old Table.
