To mark the 20th anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq, we present Abbas Fahdel's epic documentary masterpiece about the Iraq war in two parts.
This two-part documentary chronicles the everyday life in Iraq before and after the U.S. invasion. In Part I, the director filmed a group of Iraqis, mostly members of his family, in their expectation of the war. This part ends with the start of U.S. strikes on Baghdad. Part II shows the consequences of this invasion on the main characters. It ends with the violent death of the filmmaker’s nephew, twelve-year-old Haidar.
Available in two parts for a limited, 3-month release on DAFilms. Worldwide excluding the USA and France.
