Following premieres at the Sydney Film Festival, Melbourne International Film Festival and Telluride Film Festival, realscreen presents an exclusive trailer of Bill Guttentag and Michael Ware’s documentary Only the Dead, which is based on a video archive accumulated by Ware while reporting on the war in Iraq between 2003 and 2007.

At the time, the Australian journalist was following Al Qaeda leader Abu Musab al Zarqawi, who ultimately went public by giving Ware a shocking video tape in which Zarqawi documented the group’s activities and laid out his master plan for the Islamic State.

Only the Dead is produced by Ware and Patrick McDonald. UK distributor Dogwoof is handling international sales for the doc, excluding North America, Australia and New Zealand.
