The Eagle and the Condor
Year: 2018 | 57 min
Genre: Documentary Feature
Directed by: Paulette Moore
Country of Origin: United States
A symbolised narrative influenced by the plight of civilians caught up in war. Through no fault of their own, these people are trapped in their cities, targeted by both sides as acceptable collateral damage, or even as human shields. This movie explores how these survivors are forced to question their allegiances, as expressed by colour, as their base human need to survive takes precedence.
