Human Terrain Screening with Guest Speaker Producer Michael Udris


Facing long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. military initiates `Human Terrain Systems’, a controversial program that seeks to make cultural awareness the centerpiece of the new counterinsurgency strategy. Designed to embed social scientists with combat troops, the program swiftly comes under attack as a misguided and unethical effort to gather intelligence and target enemies. Gaining rare access to wargames in the Mojave Desert and training exercises at Quantico and Fort Leavenworth, HUMAN TERRAIN takes the viewer into the heart of the war machine and a shadowy collaboration between American academics and the military.

Michael Udris, producer of the film will be coming to Lincoln to talk about his film and lead a discussion afterwards.

This program is free and open to the public, sponsored Great Plains National Security Education Consortium and University of Nebraska's AnthroGroup.
