6 April at 7:00pm
Screening: Ahlaam, followed by Q&A with Director Mohamed Al-Daradji
Based on true stories, Ahlaam follows the fate of three Iraqi citizens that find themselves trapped inside the bombed ruins of a Baghdad Psychiatric Asylum on the night US forces start their â€™shock and aweâ€™ campaign to â€œliberateâ€ Iraq from Saddam Husseinâ€™s totalitarian regime. Ahlaam is Iraqâ€™s first feature film from the post-Saddam era to hit the small screen on DVD in the UK. Al-Daradjiâ€™s debut feature was filmed under highly unstable conditions, with cast and crew being exposed to shooting, imprisonment, kidnapping and torture at the hands of insurgents and coalition forces.
