Iraqi Odyssey
First screened in September 2014
Director: Samir. Documentary of Iraq's social and political history across the 20th-century, prompted by the filmmaker's investigations into several generations of his family's experience.

Twitter Capsule: History of 20th century Iraq as Homeric family saga. Acute meditation on paradox. Modest but rich new flexing of 3D.

VOR:   Recuperates 3D as humanist tactic, bringing us closer to its subjects. Comprehensive enough for those who know little about Iraq. Detailed enough to gratify experts.
