Based on real events in 2002, WMD portrays the build-up to the war in Iraq as seen through the eyes of a fictional British Intelligence officer. Alex Morgan (Simon Lenagan) accidentally discovers the British and US governments are 'falsifying' evidence around weapons of mass destruction to justify an invasion.
In the vein of 1970s cold war paranoia films ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN, THE CONVERSATION and THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR, WMD was shot in London, Rome, Berlin and Washington DC on a mixture of surveillance cameras in order to achieve a sense of documentary authenticity.
The first narrative feature film to be made about the weapons of mass destruction controversy WMD was written after numerous conversations with members of the intelligence community and individuals involved in the actual events.
During the making of the film writer/director David Holroyd and his crew were actually detained abroad and accused of working for the Secret Intelligence Service themselves.
