IR RAW Interview: Dominic Cooper & Director Lee Tamahori Of “The Devil’s Double” [Sundance Film Festival 2011] – Part I
SEVERE CLEAR Director Kristian Fraga talks about the original design of the film and its viseral nature. This video includes 2 scenes from the film. SEVERE CLEAR is an uncensored first person account of combat. Uncertainty, Chaos, Disorder…This is WAR.
SEVERE CLEAR is based on the memoir by First Lieutenant Mike Scotti as well as video footage shot by him and other members of 1st Battalion, 4th Marines on the outset of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Through their cameras we see the raw sounds of war, capturing the harrowing three hundred mile charge to Baghdad through hostile enemy territory. The footage used to create SEVERE CLEAR was never shot for the purpose of making a movie. In this digital age of embedded reporters, the film truly strips the barriers between audience and soldier, personalizing the fear, moral conundrum and adrenaline rush of life on the battlefield. SEVERE CLEAR offers an unflinching look at the uncertainty, disorder and chaos of war from the remarkable perspective of one Marine.
Coming the San Diego Film Festival and St. Louis Film Festival this fall.
