"Zaman: The Man From the Reeds"
2003
Directed by Amer Alwan

Amer Alwan's bittersweet drama carries the distinction of being the first movie in 15 years to be filmed entirely in Iraq. Set along the fertile banks of the Tigris river, Alwan's film chronicles the pleasant, peaceful existence of Zaman (Sami Kaftan), his wife (Shatha Salim), and their adopted son Yacine (Hussein Imad), a refuge from the 1991 Gulf War. When Zaman's wife falls ill, the elderly man sets out in search of medicine, courageously paddling his way to Baghdad even as radio reports warn of the impending American invasion. "A small gem... the most provocative film at this year's festival" (The Village Voice at the Tribeca Film Festival). Arabic with English subtitles. 77 minutes.
