Iraq Doc No End in Sight to Air on YouTube

If you’re lucky, you can find a few clips of obscure documentaries and mainstream films on YouTube. But they don’t stay up long because the site’s police take it down because of copyright issues. But now YouTube is getting into the feature film screening business.

They’re airing filmmaker Charles Ferguson’s documentary No End in Sight between Sept. 12 and Nov. 1, according to Reuters. The documentary, about America’s dubious decisions in the lead-up to the Iraq war, got an Oscar nod for best feature-length documentary and got the special jury prize at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.

YouTube is taking a big step politically (releasing a film about Iraq during election season) and technologically. We wonder what else they’ll be screening in the future…
