McLagan / Sommers in Lioness


2008 NR

Through first-person interviews, journal entries and archival footage, filmmakers Meg McLagan and Daria Sommers present the rarely told stories of the first female Army support soldiers sent into direct ground combat in Iraq. The film profiles five of these so-called "lionesses," who share their candid observations about serving their country under pioneering circumstances in decidedly uncertain times.
