TEDPrize winner Jehane Noujaim is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, responsible for Startup.com and the gutsy, controversial documentary Control Room. Two weeks before the U.S. invasion in Iraq, Jehane went to Qatar, gained access to both Al Jazeera and the U.S. military’s Central Command offices, and caught the onset and outbreak of the Iraqi war on film. The result, “Control Room,” lays out the divergent ways the war was reported by the Arabs and the West.
