"Turtles Can Fly"
2004
Directed by Bahman Ghobadi

Bahman Ghobadi's drama was the first film shot in Iraq after the fall of Saddam Hussein, and its tough-mindedness, lyricism, and urgency assure that it will be remembered as much more than a historical footnote. Like John Boorman's Hope and Glory, Ghobadi's drama explores the humorous and heartbreaking ways in which children respond to the grim realities of war. Set in a Kurdish refugee camp on the eve of the American invasion, the film chronicles the lives of 13-year-old Satellite (Soran Ebrahim) and his friends as they disarm land mines, scavenge for food, and overcome adversity with a thirst for adventure. "It's a soaring achievement, without ever leaving the ground" (Washington Post). Kurdish with English subtitles. 98 minutes.
