Brothers At War
In Iraq a U.S. soldier told Jake Rademacher, “I’d give my life for America any day. Wouldn’t think twice.” Jake himself has two brothers serving in Iraq and he wanted to know why? Why are they doing it? So he packed his camera and embeded himself with his brother’s unit in Iraq to answer that burning question. What makes our soldiers put their lives on the line?
Brothers at War is the result of filmmaker Jake Rademacher’s experience with his own brothers serving in Iraq. This film, executive produced by Gary Sinise, is one of exquisite beauty and deep emotion and, even more importantly, is a salute to the patriotism and bravery of our men and women in uniform. Unlike the products of Hollywood, this film does not treat our soldiers as villains and criminals.
This is an Iraq conflict film worth promoting. Look it up and go see it, won’t you?
BROTHERS AT WARe is an intimate portrait of an American family during a turbulent time. Jake Rademacher sets out to understand the experience, sacrifice, and motivation of his two brothers serving in Iraq. The film follows Jake’s exploits as he risks everything—including his life—to tell his brothers’ story. Often humorous, but sometimes downright lethal, BROTHERS AT WAR is a remarkable journey where Jake embeds with four combat units in Iraq. Unprecedented access to U.S. and Iraqi combat units take him behind the camouflage curtain with secret reconnaissance troops on the Syrian border, into sniper “Hide Sites” in the Sunni Triangle and through raging machine gun battles with the Iraqi Army. Ultimately, the film follows his brothers home, where separations and life-threatening work ripple through their parents, siblings, wives and children. BROTHERS AT WAR provides a rare look at the bonds and service of our soldiers on the frontlines and the profound effects their service has on the loved ones they leave behind.
BROTHERS AT WAR opens in select cities on March 13th and expands to additional markets in the weeks to follow. To see if the film is coming to your town visit www.brothersatwarmovie.com, where you can also watch the trailer, buy tickets, share your own personal story and much more.
