"Regardless of the war, the administration, or the various sophistries for expending human lives as a matter of government policy, profiteering from it universally offends all citizens, whether they are Republicans, Democrats, Independents, other parties or no shows" (Charles Lewis, Center for Public Integrity).

Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers is the story of what happens to everyday Americans when corporations go to war. Acclaimed director Robert Greenwald (Uncovered, Unconstitutional, Outfoxed, and Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price) takes you inside the lives of soldiers, truck drivers, widows, and children who have been changed forever as a result of profiteering in the reconstruction (not to mention destruction) of Iraq. Iraq for Sale uncovers the connections between private corporations making a killing in Iraq and the decision makers (including the self-proclaimed "Decider" himself) who allow them to do so.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
