IRAQI ODYSSEY

DIRECTOR: Samir - SWITZERLAND

Bombs, war, angry bearded men, shrouded sobbing women, shattered cities: Iraq, as seen through the eyes of the Western media these days. In this riveting and timely film, author and director Samir tells the compelling story of his globalized middle-class Iraqi family—now scattered between Auckland, Moscow, Paris, London and Buffalo, New York—recounting their stories of departures and uprootings. Samir also engrossingly chronicles how Iraqis’ dreams of building a modern and just society after their nation achieved independence in the 1950s were brutally dashed over the course of half a century of dictatorship, war, and foreign occupation. (162 mins.)

Filmography: Snow White (2005), Forget Bagdad: Jews & Arabs - The Iraqi Connection (2002)

Sponsored by the World Affairs Council.



Interests: Oscar Submissions, Documentary Views.
