A reference point in the turmoil
15 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Born in Babylon, Irak, Abbas Fahdel became a filmmaker in France. In 2002, he returned in his native land and made the documentary « Back to Babylon ». One year later, he return again in Iraq to make « We Iraqis », a documentary in which he explore a reality that becomes alien to him. In this new film, Abbas Fahdel shows Iraqis in another light, and he is better equipped than anyone for this task, because he is both an "outsider" and a native son. An Iraqi among Iraqis, he embodies a reference point in the turmoil. His presence and commitment during the years before, his receptivity during those months when everyone was preparing for war explains why his camera is never indiscreet.
