Causalities of the State

“Casualties of the State” is a political thriller set against a backdrop of escalating tension with Iran; a private security company, ala Blackwater, high finance, secret political cabals and the murder of a U.S. Senator and Deputy Defense Secretary. A conspiracy theorist’s delight, “Casualties” raises moral and ethical questions about how far one can go to try to stop a government that is out of control.

This series takes an in-depth look at St. Louis area filmmakers and their films.
