Gunner Palace

Came across an interesting link (hat tip Blackfive) to a trailer for a movie coming out in March called Gunner Palace. It's about some soldiers stationed in an old palace of Saddam's in Baghdad. It looks pretty interesting and apolitical. That remains to be seen though.

The tag line in the ad says, "400 American soldiers carry out their mission from a bombed-out pleasure palace once owned by Saddam Hussein. This is their story."

The website has diaries from the filmakers, trailers, reviews, screenings lists and synopsis. It definitely looks like a must see.

Also from Blackfive, "A Company of Soldiers" airs this Tuesday 2/9/05 at 10pm on channel 9 in the S.F. bay area. Check your local PBS listings for "Frontline". It may air at a different time in your area.
