Blackwater and ‘Shadow Company’

Blackwater and 'Shadow Company'

All this news about Blackwater, and security contractors overseas, has me thinking about Nick Biconic and Jason Bourque’s gripping documentary, Shadow Company. I remember when I first saw the doc, I was blown away and outraged by what it revealed of this booming industry. We were lucky to have the film’s world premiere at SXSW 2006, where it sparked a lot of debate and some glowing reviews. Since then, the doc played the festival circuit and landed various distribution deals. You can actually see the film this weekend in Chicago, at the Gene Siskel Film Center. It couldn’t more more timely, or edifying.
