TV2.2: Two Wars

May 11, 2008
Two foreigners try to make sense of life in the U.S. in the aftermath of two very different wars.
  • Prologue

    The Saber-Tooth tiger and the Giant Sloth will forever be enemies – partly because they’re stuck in an animatronic loop, which is kind of like a lot of real battles.

  • Act One

    Ask an Iraqi

    A young Iraqi ends up in America after fleeing Iraq and goes on a road trip to ask Americans questions about the War. But he approaches people in a very specific way, a way you might actually recognize from Peanuts comics. The conversations he has illuminate how we form opinions about a war happening far away.

  • Act Two

    Grassnost

    A Bulgarian man in Rhode Island realizes that an ongoing argument with his American wife has to do with the life he left behind 20 years ago, on the other side of the Iron Curtain.
