Dialogue: Nick Broomfield
The director discusses his latest project, "Battle for Haditha."
Nick Broomfield's documentary career began in the early 1970s and has spanned topics from fetishists, Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love to female serial killer Aileen Wuornos and white supremacists. The filmmaker is shifting his approach. His last two movies have been scripted movies based on facts. For his latest, he turns his attention to the conflict in Iraq with "Battle For Haditha." The picture, which unspools here today, is an investigation into the massacre of 24 Iraqis allegedly shot by U.S. marines avenging the death of one of their own in a roadside bombing. Broomfield, who premiered the film at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year, talks to The Hollywood Reporter's Charles Masters and Stuart Kemp about the project.
