Summary
In 2004, television, radio and print media covered the U.S.-led attack on Fallujah. So did one video game. But can video games do journalism? This documentary examines the role played by New York based reality games company Kuma Reality Games in connecting young people to current events. After designing a video game called Kuma/War based on the November 2004 siege of Fallujah, Kuma Reality began to think of itself as a news organization. But war reporting has certainly never looked like this before
