COMMENTS

Main Feature
"Excellent editing and combination of archive footage achieved an enthralling account in only 70 mins."
"As my grandfather was a Jewish Iraki this had particular poignancy for me. Very moving."
"Beautifully researched documentary."
"Unknown history we need to know."
"A very human story, a window on a part of history I knew nothing about. It raises so many questions."

And the short film - Dallas's Story
"Subtle, strong, economical story-telling."
"The animation was so graphic - almost audible."
"A moving insight into the intimate consequences of war."
"An aspect of the legacy of war, which is not often considered.
"

Director: Fiona Murphy, UK/Iraq/Israel, 2016, 70 minutes English/Hebrew/Arabic with subtitles
