H'Wood Reporter: War, child labor, Gore in documentary spotlight

Movies about the war in Iraq and forced child labor in South America have earned top honors from the International Documentary Association. James Longley‘s “Iraq in Fragments,” which offers intimate portraits of life among everyday Iraqis, won the group’s feature documentary award Friday. The short film award went to Marcelo Bukin for “Angel’s Fire” (Fuego de Angel).
