War Matters is a character driven documentary by London based production company CY Film Productions. The film chronicles 10 years of anti-war protest in the city of London through the story of Brian Haw, a veteran peace campaigner who challenged the UK Government’s Middle East policy for over 10 years. The documentary also examines the British arms trade and the repercussions of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars around the world, as democratic rights are being curtailed and the threat of terrorism overshadows our lives.
The film asks the question: where does democracy end and tyranny begin? People are dying across the Middle East fighting for democracy while in the UK protesters are feeling their democratic rights slip away.
