At the mall, online, and even within the US military. Interactive, realistic, pro-war video games have become part of American culture. But anti-war protesters have found a way inside those games too. And artists are finding ways to turn the virtual world, into a place where the military hero narrative can be questioned. On this edition, We hear excerpts from the movie Returning Fire: Interventions in Video Game Culture, written and directed by Roger Stahl.

Featuring:

Joseph Delappe, University of Nevada Art professor; Lee Hutchinson, brother of soldier killed in Iraq; Wafaa Bilal, New York University's Tisch School of the Arts Assistant Arts professor; "Mancow" Mulle, radio host.
