Kirk Johnson is fighting to save Iraqis whose lives are in danger because they worked for the U.S. government and military to help rebuild Iraq. After leading reconstruction teams in Baghdad and Fallujah for the United States, he discovers that many of his Iraqi friends and colleagues are being targeted as “collaborators with the enemy.” Frustrated by a stagnating government bureaucracy in the U.S. that fails to protect U.S.-affiliated Iraqis, Kirk begins compiling a list of their names and works with a team of lawyers to get them out of harm’s way. Part of the Frequency Film Festival. 800-838-3006.
