The story of how truth is gathered, presented, and ultimately created by those who deliver it.

Synopsis

Control Room is a feature documentary that provides an opportunity to re-examine one of the most pressing international relations questions of the 21st century: "Is America radicalizing or stabilizing the Arab world?" Control Room provides insight into the Arabic network Al Jazeera's presentation of the second Iraq war to their worldwide audience. It also calls into question many of the prevailing images and positions offered up by the U.S. news media. Control Room follows the journey of three characters from Al Jazeera and Central Command through the beginning of the Iraq war in order to tell the larger story of how truth is gathered, presented, and ultimately created by those who deliver it.
