Movie Redacted Stuns Venice Film Festival

I wasn't aware of the movie Redacted until I read this story. It sounds like the movie captured the enormity of the premeditated crime that resulted in the rape and murder of Abeer Qasim Hamza al-Janabi and the murder of her parents and younger sister.

A new film about the real-life rape and killing of a 14-year-old Iraqi girl by U.S. soldiers who also murdered her family stunned the Venice festival, with shocking images that left some viewers in tears.

There are times when shocking images are just gore, but there are times when shocking images make people let go of their safe illusions.
