Music & Film: War

Bill Moyers interviewed Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro about their documentary, Body of War. The film depicts the story of Iraq war veteran Tomas Young. Young was shot and paralyzed less than a week into his tour of duty. Watch clips of the movie and the interview here. (Thanks Cody)

Inspired by Tomas Young's story, Eddie Vedder wrote "No More."
It's included in Body of War: Songs That Inspired an Iraq War Veteran, a two-CD compilation featuring songs handpicked by Young. Sale proceeds from the record will benefit Iraq Veterans Against the War.


Below is the trailer for the film.
