Jake Gyllenhaal Challenges The Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize

Jake Gyllenhaal Challenges the Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize is a remixed narrative that combines two Jake Gyllenhaal films (Donnie Darko and Jarhead) with news footage of President Barack Obama. As the President wins the Nobel Peace Prize, Gyllenhaal’s character becomes disillusioned with Obama’s pro-war rhetoric, escalation of the war in Afghanistan, and the failure to withdraw troops from Iraq.
