ABSTRACT
After landing major media attention last season with "Capturing the Friedmans," Magnolia Pictures has secured rights to another potentially controversial feature documentary in "Control Room," which explores the inner workings of Middle Eastern news agency Al Jazeera. Directed by Jehane Noujaim, "Control Room" premiered at Sundance and screens this week in New York in the New Directors and New Films lineup. While war has been transmitted into living rooms via television since Vietnam, "Control Room" provides a rare opportunity to examine the phenomenon from the other side, with a behind the scenes glimpse of Al Jazeera's coverage of the second Iraq conflict.
