After six years, British military operations in Iraq have ended and the last of our troops have now packed up and left Basra. 179 servicemen and women have not returned home though, having lost their lives whilst serving with the British Armed Forces.

Following on from the multi-award winning The Fallen, The Fallen: Legacy of Iraq is a powerful and timely documentary in which a number of the friends and family featured in Morgan Matthews’ previous film, explore the deeply personal and lasting legacy Iraq has for them.

The invasion of Iraq has always been controversial but this film provides a voice for some of the people who have been most significantly affected by the decisions that took us to war.

“Friends and families of the deceased…talk movingly about their experiences in this powerful documentary”
Martin James, The Sunday Times

“The Fallen: Legacy of Iraq gives a voice to friends and family of some of those who died during the controversial conflict…with powerful and surprising results.”
Joe Clay, The Times
