The documentary Theaters of War blows the lid off Hollywood’s decades-long relationship with the Pentagon and the CIA.
Roger Stahl, the director of Theaters of War, lays out the basic premise of his stunning new film.
"The Pentagon and the CIA have exercised direct editorial control over more than 2,500 films and television shows. These discoveries raise questions about the government’s reach at a time when deciphering propaganda from fact has become increasingly difficult,” Stahl writes.
Theaters of War provides breathtaking evidence that in exchange for supplying producers with onscreen military hardware, the Pentagon and CIA have been allowed to systematically scrub Hollywood scripts of anything that hints at US war crimes, corruption, racism, sexual assault, coups, assassinations, and torture.
