Shot over three years and uniquely examined through the everyday lives of Iraqis, this visually stunning set of films is widely held as one of the most considered and visceral Iraq documentaries to date. Through three intimate portraits, American director James Longley captures a telling snapshot of a country in turbulent transition. From a fatherless 11-year-old boy toiling through a garage apprenticeship to sobering images of Islamic law being violently enforced, each story reveals a nation splintered by ethnic-group divisions and unhinged by post-Saddam politics; tensions seemingly tightened to breaking point by a continued US presence.
Adapted from Marjane Satrapi's brilliantly funny autobiographical graphic novel about a rebellious young girl's experience of revolutionary Iran.
