The Staging Game

Local Iraq vet Casey Porter's latest film about his experiences in a war zone

With his short documentary movies, Casey Porter has become one of the most prominent figures in the local anti-war movement. Why? Because he's actually served in Iraq and Kuwait (read our interview with him and other anti-war veterans here).

Since leaving the US Army with an honorable discharge on June 2, Porter has been editing together more of his footage from his time in the Gulf. His latest, entitled The Staging Game, is now online, and you can watch it right here.
