The Quiet American is Philip Noyce's adaptation of Graham Greene's acclaimed novel of international intrigue, set in Vietnam circa 1952 at the dawn of the imperialistic regime cum civil war about to outbreak, focusing on a love triangle between an English journalist, a Vietnamese taxi dancer, and an American "doctor".

Dahr Jamail, American independent journalist, has an important story to tell. Recognizing that Americans were being fed a sanitized, propagandistic view of the US occupation of Iraq, he went to Iraq to find
the truth. This is his report. After being unembedded in Iraq for over 8 months, he returned to the States to tell what he discovered.

No one turned away for lack of money. Sponsored by Youth Against War and Racism UW. For more information send an email to
