P.O.V. - My Country, My Country | Preview | PBS

Airs Wed., Oct. 25, 2006 at 9PM on PBS (check local listings) Is it possible to conduct democratic elections in a war zone? Can a foreign military force bring Western-style democracy to the Muslim world? For U.S. military and diplomatic planners in Iraq, the answer to both questions has been a resolute "yes." For Iraqis, these contradictions have led to tragic consequences as political uncertainty and mounting violence continue to dominate daily life more than three years after the U.S. invasion. The state of democracy, both Iraq's and the United States', is the focus of Laura Poitras's new documentary, "My Country, My Country," an unforgettable journey into the heart of war-ravaged Iraq in the months leading up to the January 2005 elections.
