Marooned in Iraq



Directed by: Bahman Ghobadi

(97 mins) During the Iran-Iraq war, an aging Iranian-Kurd musician hears that his wife, a singer with a magical voice who deserted him for his best friend and fled to Iraq, is in trouble. He cons his two sons into accompanying him on the search for her, and they embark on an adventure filled with music, romance and danger. Acclaimed Iranian director Bahman Ghobadi's (A Time for Drunken Horses) award-winning film uses humor and wit to dramatize the plight of the Kurdish people.
