Fires of Kuwait


Firestorm in the desert: the terrible legacy of the Gulf War - 608 oil wells burning out of control, ignited by retreating Iraqi troops. Firefighters from 10 countries answered Kuwait's cry for help. Supported by more than 10,000 people from 40 nations, they battled and won.
A 1992 Academy AwardŽ nominee for Best Documentary Feature, Fires of Kuwait is a dramatic story of human ingenuity, cooperation and courage.
