Meeting Resistance

Meeting Resistance

A month after the fall of Baghdad, photographer Molly Bingham met a friendly middle-aged man who offered to give her a tour of a mosque where she had been taking pictures. As she was leaving, the man dropped a bombshell - he told Molly's translator he was with the resistance.

Over the next 10 months, Molly and fellow photographer Steve Connors met and talked with the Iraqi men and women who were beginning to join the insurgency. The result is a documentary film, "Meeting Resistance." This week, they are showing the film to military officials and diplomats in Baghdad.
