For those unsatisfied with sensational
television coverage featuring "terrorism experts," HUMAN
WEAPON provides the first sober, in-depth examination of the complexities
of the suicide bombing phenomenon.
Filmed in Iran, Lebanon, Sri Lanka, Israel, Palestine, Europe and
the United States, HUMAN WEAPON weaves dramatic, previously unseen
footage together with interviews of key militants whose organizations
use suicide bombing as part of their strategy. It supplements these
scenes with powerful human stories.
"**** (4 Stars!). Chilling and instructive."
-David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
"A gripping and important documentary."
-Stephen Holden, New York Times
"HUMAN WEAPON provides an in-depth
view into the global trend of suicide bombing and contextualizes
resistence groups in their appropriate place in history."
