Publisher's Summary

Hear filmmaker Brian De Palma and Army chaplain Rev. John Barkemeyer on this edition of Fresh Air.

Brian De Palma's films include Carrie, Scarface, The Untouchables, and Casualties of War. His new film, Redacted, is about a U.S. Army squad who raped and murdered a 14-year-old girl in Iraq. It's based on reports he saw on the Internet about the incident. De Palma uses a raw, cinema verite technique in the film, using soldier's blogs, video diaries, and online testimonials.

Then, Rev. John Barkemeyer, who was previously pastor of St. Cajetan Church in Chicago's Morgan Park. Barkemeyer has completed two tours of Iraq. When he was serving in Anbar, he was the only Catholic chaplain in the province. He would often travel by convoy from outpost to outpost, administering last rites, holding mass, or comforting soldiers. While in Iraq, his journal entries were published in the Daily Southtown.
