The Roots of War

The Roots of War… the Road to Peace, provides an intriguing look at the complexity of terrorism and the events that led to 9/11. The 90-minute documentary examines radical Islamist terrorism and its impact on the world stage. Shot on location from Baghdad to Saudi Arabia- through the eyes and voices of key experts, scholars and everyday people, Roots examines history, facts and analysis and gives perspective on the social and political reasons behind most acts of terrorism. It looks at the conflicts in the Middle East that have created a breeding ground for these acts of violence and the role the United States plays.

At a time in history when we are still fighting the “war against terror” the McCuistion team (Niki and Dennis, producers of the McCuistion Program, now in its 20th year with KERA, Channel 13), takes an in depth, non-partisan, balanced look at terrorism.

“Our purpose was to give historical context and as balanced a perspective as possible on the social, human, geo-political and economic costs of terrorism, whose seeds were sown throughout history in the varied conflicts between the great civilizations and religions of the world,” says Niki McCuistion, Executive Producer -Director of the documentary. “We believe we succeeded in presenting an objective look at a complex issue that continues to dramatically impact our everyday lives.”
