Dear Deborah

Many congratulations on winning the International competition at the Britdoc Festival! I’m the head of acquisitions for Swipe Films in London – we release theatrically and on DVD in UK and Ireland. Could you send me a copy THE WAR TAPES so we can watch it with a view to possibly acquiring it?

Best wishes,

Hello Deborah,

You spoke to an Army General Officer on a flight to Philadelphia recently, and he asked that I contact you to get more details regarding The War Tapes. If you don't mind, can you please contact me directly at

Deborah: Hello. My name is Steven P. Richards, and I saw The War Tapes on the military channel. As an amry veteran of the Panamain invasion and the Gulf War, I was deeply moved by your movie. Thank you. I am also songwriter, and I have recently written a song called “This is War,” and have been told by people that don't even owe me money that it "has a strong melody, a catchy chorus and lyrics that paint an unforgettable picture of the impact of war." I wrote this song because I feel that our exposure to the war in Iraq has been very sanitized, and has in turn kept us distanced from the daily horrors that our soldiers face. I think that this is calculated to keep us from asking questions about why we are there and why aren't we working toward an exit strategy. Ultimately, I would love it if this song could, if even slightly, help speed the process of getting them safely home for good. I would love to forward you a copy of the demo to see if you may know of any upcoming movie projects that might be interested in using it. If you like, you can listen to it via the link below on myspace, or I can send you a cd. Thank you very much for your courage, courtesy and time.

Dear Deborah,

NOW ( is a working platform that will take place at the CCCB from 2006 to 2009. The project reflects on the present on the basis of the scientific, technological, artistic, social and spiritual transformations taking place at the start of the 21st century - because today it is no longer possible to explain art and culture without interiorizing scientific concepts and working with a systemic view of the world. NOW is a process of research, creation and diffusion bringing together different local and international agents involved in promoting a change of paradigm in the information and knowledge society and in globalized cultures.

NOW is structured in different subjects:
Ø Open science: creation of a shared project and bridges of communication between science and the humanities
Ø Cybersphere: how “cyber” technologies now affect every area of everyday life
Ø Eco Factor: the need for a systemic, organic view of the planet to ensure its survival
Ø Art Now: exploration of the present moment in art: what are the leading lines, the criteria of validation and the meaning of new practices?
Ø Psi particle: an exploration of new spirituality that takes as its starting point the crisis of traditional religions
Ø New activism: commitment and militancy, networking, new social involvement and global citizenship
Ø Emerging culture: a critical analysis and resituation of alternative and independent culture in the face of accelerated socio-cultural transformation

NOW does not have a specific format, it challenges classic forms and suggests new ones, interrelating them in space and time. Loading and Downloading, Biblio Point, Containers of paradigms and the Electromagnetic Spectrum Installation are NOW's permanent spaces for consultation, meeting, dialogue and information.

Every edition includes one documentary related with one of the subjects. In the first edition we screened Earthlings (2004, 95' directed by Shaun Monson), and in the second one Darwin’s Nightmare (2004, 107’, directed by Hubbert Sauper).

On November there will be an other NOW meeting point. We are in the documentary stage and we think that THE WAR TAPES could be included in this next edition. To get sure that this could be the right and best documentary for the occasion, we would like to ask you if you could provide us a pre-view DVD, this will help us very much in this delicate process. Of course we could afford the sending expenses if that’s a problem. If you need more information, please, don’t hesitate to ask us for it.

We would like to thank you in advanced your kind collaboration and we would like to congratulate you for your brilliant work.

I’m looking forward hearing of you,

Kind regards,

TI haven't seen "The War Tapes," but I just finished watching the new Frontline of the Bad Voodoo company's current deployment in Iraq and I think it's an excellent documentary and while not a totally new concept of allowing the subjects to do their own reporting, you have done an astounding job and picked a really great group -- particularly that platoon leader, Sgt. Nunn, who I REALLY feel for.

I sure hope he gets all his guys back in one piece and we can get ALL our troops home soon.

Thanks so much for producing this documentary!

Hello Deborah! I just watched your talk on "" about "The War Tapes". A very moving talk - thank you for that. I am also interested in opening up discussions with soldiers/former soldiers' experiences, as one of my best friends is currently dealing with the ramifications of 3 tours in Afghanistan with the Canadian Forces.
I am a theatre Director/Producer in Canada and would like to discuss the possibility of connecting an upcoming theatre production (fall 2009) with the film. The play being produced contains issues such as PTSD and the impact of war on human relationships. Part of my goal for producing the play is to provide a platform for conversations about PTSD, war/conflicts. I will be doing this through post show talk-back sessions, and providing materials for the audience to take/purchase after the show. I would love to make "The War Tapes" DVD available for purchase.
If you would send me an email about this, it would be much appreciated!
