Right around the time when Nick Broomfield’s non-fiction film”Battle for Haditha” was coming out, I was able to set up an interview with the famed filmmaker. Nick was primarily known for his off-beat documentaries where he cast himself as a mostly bewildered fish-out-of-water witness than a hard-hitting documentarian like Alex Gibney or the agenda-happy Michael Moore. Nick’s string of documentaries includes Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madame, “Biggie and Tupac” and “Kurt & Courtney”. “Haditha” is something of a departure for the British Mr. Broomfield though some of the scenes in his Iraq War drama are shot quite documentary-style. I met with the director and one of his film’s subjects, Elliot Ruiz, a non-professional actor who, himself, was an Iraq War vet. We sat at a small table in the Film Forum offices. I was also joined by friend, photographer David Godlis. These photos are all his.
