Angry bearded men, veiled women, demolished cities: Iraq, as seen through the eyes of the western media. What happened to the enlightened society of the 1950s and 1960s? How did it come to this? A globalized middle-class Iraqi family in diaspora speaks.
Tracing the emigrations of his family over more than half a century, this riveting documentary epic from acclaimed expatriate Iraqi filmmaker Samir pays moving homage to the frustrated democratic dreams of a people successively plagued by the horrors of dictatorship, war, and foreign occupation of Iraq.
The film won the NETPAC Award for Best Asian Film at the 8th Abu Dhabi Film Festival..
