DIRECTOR: Mohamed Al-Daradji - IRAQ

A son’s search for his father and a mother’s search for her son form the centerpiece for an exploration of the aftermath of Saddam Hussein’s regime. Set in 2003, just after Hussein’s downfall, young Ahmed and his determined grandmother journey across Iraq in search of his father, Ibrahim, a soldier missing in action since 1991. Focusing on forgiveness and people’s ability to overcome rather than on the many atrocities of the regime, Son of Babylon offers a poignant, eye-opening take on post-war Iraq, telling the story of two as the story of many. “Chases a poetic answer for the crimes of Saddam Hussein.”—Variety. (85 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Dreams (05), War, Love, God & Madness (08).

This year’s Iraqi submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.

In Arabic and Kurdish.


Interests: Oscar Submissions, Narrative Feature, Middle Eastern.
