A must see for all, especially all you 'patriots'
A fantastic play on ideas: instead of showing U.S. forces rounding up suspected terrorists, here we see an unnamed U.S. military operation rounding up red-heads.
I think this video is very powerful because when you see a familiar scenario being played out by an unlikely group of people, you begin to separate yourself from your own emotions and look at the situation more critically.
A marvelous way to promote the very act of thinking!
I highly recommend seeing it for yourself!!!
I am a US Soldier
I in general love MIA, but I find this video absurd. I am a member of the United States Army and I am truely offended by this video. Yes, in certain parts of the world there is opression due to religious conflicts, etc, BUT American soldiers do NOT act like this and we have laws we have to abide such as the Geneva Conventions, which protects the rights of terriosts, but tell me, when we are in Afganistan or Iraq fighting for your freedom, who is there to protect our rights?

United States Army
Yeah it's violent. Yeah it's graphic. The video also has quite the message.
It's a commentary on social injustice and oppression. The red heads in the video are the Jews during the Holocaust, or Asians during WW2. It's a fable to show how any group can be targeted for no rhyme or reason and murdered mercilessly. This is some of her finest and most mature art and I really respect this piece.
