About Baghdad



Directed by: Bassam Haddad

(90 mins) In July of 2003, exiled writer and poet, Sinaan Antoon, returned to his native Baghdad with a team of independent filmmakers, artists, and poets to document the effects that decades of oppression, war, sanctions, and occupation have had on his city. The result is a fascinating mosaic of opinions, perspectives, desires, and memories that offers a picture far more complex than the limited one presented by mainstream US media. About Baghdad pays tribute to the brave people Baghdad as they struggle to come to terms with the tragic fate of their beloved city.
