Embedded/Live is a madcap lampoon of the Bush administration's war hawking, and of the media's culpability in the success of this questionable venture. While certainly devoid of sugar-coating, the piece expresses compassion and strong support for the soldiers caught up in the madness. Written, directed and produced by actor/activist Tim Robbins, the film examines the high price of heroism for those on the front lines of a conflict in the Middle East, while bringing to account the corrupt members of the media and government that often thrive on the ordeals of the very heroes they laud. Performed at Manhattan's beloved Public Theatre in Central Park, this live event, dynamically filmed, features music of Bob Dylan, System of a Down, The Clash, Rage Against the Machine, and Public Enemy. It's dynamic, rowdy and hilariously mordant performances tell a story as full of heart as it is of sarcastic humor and gutsy candor.
