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.
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.
