We like to reenact the civil war. Shooting blanks, dressing like soldiers. Recreating battles exactly. It’s not exact though. We are so far removed from it, we may as well be doing Macbeth. Everyone claps at the end, applauds the actions and we all leave feeling we have done something culturally good for ourselves. Watch what happens when a current war is reenacted. It isn’t fun. It is a horror movie – a gory bloody slasher flick, because that is what real war is, only it’s not hollywood fakery. This documentary shows what happens when someone tries to reenact a real war that really happened in modern times.
