Doc Blog

As I talked to reporters yesterday about the Real to Reel line-up, I heard a recurring sense of surprise that the co-director of BODY OF WAR was the same Phil Donahue well-known as the venerable talk show host. Indeed it is. He teamed up with veteran doc maker Ellen Spiro to tell the story of Tomas Young, an Iraq war veteran who became a vocal opponent of the Bush administration. In the film, Donahue stays strictly behind the camera. But here he's pictured with Young, Spiro and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, who wrote two new songs for the film.

Tomorrow Doc Blog will hit the road to visit Michael Moore's Traverse City Film Festival on the shore of Lake Michigan. Check back for on the scene reports and further reflections on TIFF's doc line-up.
