Preceding short film: BITTERSWEET BAGHDAD (2016) dir. Alia Hassan
“Baghdad was not like any environment I had ever shot before... Producing this piece led me to explore the culture and mind of the city in a depth to which I would never have otherwise reached... let this documentary remind us that we can stand together as humans even in light of backwards political decisions.” - Alia Hassan
