Anaconda Targets, a documentation tape of aerial bombings by the American military in Afghanistan, depicts the devastating effect of smart bombs. Not often featured in media reports: The soldiers' voices form the soundtrack that accompanies these chilling images. The document has been appropriated by filmmaker Dominic Angerame as a critique of his government's military aggression. (Susan Oxtoby) About 2.000 troops from the US-led military coalition were engaged in close combat on March 4th, 2002 with small pockets of suspected Al Qaeda and Taliban fighters in the rugged terrain of northeastern Afghanistan, as part of a mission called «Operation Anaconda». The footage in this film was recorded during the mission.
