Control Room

Egyptian-American filmmaker Jehane Noujaim's documentary Control Room, due to be released commercially in mid-May 2004, offers a fascinating glimpse of the inner workings of Arabic satellite channel Al Jazeera during the recent war in Iraq. TBS presents a 5-minute preview from the film plus Danny Schechter's interview with the filmmaker.
