Late Night FDL: Marie Colvin, 1946-2012

By: Wednesday February 22, 2012 8:00 pm

I met Marie Colvin briefly in 2005 at the Full Frame film festival in Durahm, North Carolina. She and Molly Bingham (who went on to become a friend of the blog) were both featured in Barbara Kopple’s documentary about women journalists in Iraq, Bearing Witness. Marie’s hotel room was next door to mine and the celebration party was loud and long, lasting into the wee hours of the morning. My impression was that she was a remarkable woman who knew how to enjoy life.


GRITtv: Who Is The Iraqi Resistance? Beyond the Pentagon Spin

Iran, Al-Qaeda, Saddam’s “dead-enders”…you’d have a pretty muddled picture of who’s fighting in Iraq if you only read the headlines in American media. Molly Bingham and Steve Conors offer a very different picture in their new film Meeting Resistance.
