The real significance of this war [on terror] for the world and for us as a country is completely concealed.

Richard Rowley, director and cinematographer,

Richard Rowley is an American director, cinematographer, and editor, and the co-founder of Big Noise Films.

He has made a number of award-winning documentaries and news stories for networks like Al Jazeera English , BBC , Democracy Now! , and PBS .

Rowley filmed and directed Dirty Wars , which won the Cinematography Award for US Documentary at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

Rowley’s film takes him to the conflict regions of Afghanistan, Yemen, and Somalia, and the documentary uncovers the shadowy, dirty war being waged by the US in the name of fighting terrorism.

Rowley joined Empire to discuss how the so-called US war on terror has taken on a dark, secretive, and global dimension since 9/11.
