WINNER AT THE AMSTERDAM INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL!
Few will argue with the fact that the United States’ war with Iraq will always spark heated debate, regardless of the outcome. For this reason, X-Man will no doubt kindle some controversy. While the debate continues to rage safely in public forums and behind closed doors, X-Man focuses on the horrors faced by the soldiers who are actually waging the war and who are sometimes forgotten beyond their use as political pawns by both pro-war and antiwar activists. In this music video, Antonio Parker (of the group 4) assumes the role of an American soldier stationed in Iraq, who watches neighborhoods become battlefields, witnesses the suffering of fellow soldiers and observes increasingly advanced technological strikes while struggling to comprehend the reasons behind the war as well as his role in it.
