A full length feature film, based on interviews and public lectures (in Japan and the US) that Chomsky gave in the spring of 2002. Herein, our man places the terrorist attacks of 9/11 in the context of American foreign intervention throughout the postwar decades—in Vietnam, Central America, the Middle East, and elsewhere. Beginning with the fundamental principle that the exercise of violence against civilian populations is terror, Chomsky—in stark and uncompromising terms—challenges the United States to apply to its own actions the moral standards it apparently demands of others. DVD edition includes 30 minutes of bonus footage, cast and crew profiles, a trailer gallery, and chapters.
