Abu Ghraib is scheduled to re-open its doors this month under the name of "Baghdad Central Prison," and with such regime shifts comes a film that parallels our involvement during wartime with the events of a Memorial Day weekend in Ocean City, Maryland–events such as ice luging and beer bonging and date rape. This film, directed by International WOW Company's Josh Fox and produced in part by Michael Stipe, is very serious business. Imagine Girls Gone Wild meets 24 with the camera work of Cloverfield. Memorial Day opens today at IFC.
