Life Behind the Camera in Iraq

A new documentary by CNN's Michael Holmes called "Month of Mayhem" chronicles his own month long reporting in Iraq. It's a behind the scenes look at journalism and covering the war. It will air Sat, May 12th and Sun, May 13th at 8pm est. as part of CNN's Special Investigation Unit.

From the press release:

Throughout this assignment, Holmes and CNN photographers film what life is like for them working and living at CNN’s bureau outside of Baghdad’s Green Zone. This assignment marks Holmes’ eighth in Iraq since the onset of war there in 2003. In January 2004, Holmes survived an ambush on a two-vehicle convoy that left two CNN staffers dead and one wounded.

Putting human faces on the casualties of war, Holmes reports on the bombings in markets and at universities, the kidnapping and torture of Iraqi civilians, and attacks on military troops that occasionally come across as “routine” to viewers of nightly newscasts

From the press release, it seems to be an interesting piece. I'll be looking forward in watching that SIU.
