The Australian and the Arms Dealer (Clip 3 of 3)

In this scene from My Country, My Country, filmmaker Laura Poitras films a Kurdish arms dealer meeting with an Australian security contractor to purchase weapons to secure Iraq's elections that are being conducted as part of the United States' effort to bring democracy to the Middle East. Poitras says, "The scene, in which Peter and the arms dealer debate the pros and cons of Chinese vs. Russian AK-47s while drinking cans of coke, is one of my favorites in the film."
