Storyline

The Dreams of Sparrows follows first time Iraqi director Hayder Mousa Daffar and his team of contributing directors as they share their vision of life in Baghdad, post war and pre reconstruction. It is his attempt to reconcile the conflicting points of view among Iraqis regarding the war, Saddam Hussein and the occupation; the process of which ultimately changes him and his crew irrevocably. The Dreams of Sparrows is dedicated to Saad Fahker, Associate Producer who died during the production. In the first act we meet Hayder Jabbar, one of the several Iraqi directors chosen by Daffar to contribute to the documentary portrait. After explaining his involvement in the project, Jabbar insists on thanking his savior George Bush, who he loves. Jabbar's convictions at the beginning of the film, contrasted with the bleak and often painful subjects of interview, introduce the essential divide within Iraqi psychology that the movie follows as it develops from the aftermath of war, the capture of...

Definitely worth watching
11 July 2005 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

The Dreams of Sparrows is a simple movie about people of modern day Iraq, by Iraqis for Americans. It doesn't adhere to a position or make a case for or against U.S. policy on Iraq. It shows, better than the evening news, what life is like and what Iraqis think about their current state of affairs, and American involvement in their country. We see their hopes and aspirations. It is very worthwhile watching. I recommend it.

This film should be distributed in the United States. I found it through Netflix and a distributor I found through amazon.co.uk that will sell to buyers in the U.S.
