Dualism is a social commentary piece which features the famous footage of six United States Marines raising a U.S. flag during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II.
The word "DUALISM" can be seen against the flag. As war plays an ever present role in our world, this piece brings attention to those who oppose war and those who glorify it. During the Battle of Iwo Jima alone, more than 5,000 Marines and nearly 18,000 Japanese soldiers died within a month of fighting. Over 60 million people died during the entirety of World War II.
