Storyline

The Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra documentary film presents a study of the Iraqi musical culture that was changing over the past years since the INSO formed early in the forties of the last century and to this day. For many years back, Iraq was never been stable, as every couple of years there were political issues, wars, military coups and other internal and regional problems. Those unstable conditions in addition to some internal society changes, affected the musical culture in Iraq during the last seven decades. The film discusses and shows how those obstacles reflected against the Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra and it's members from a perspective of the classical music genre. Written by Anonymous

Very educational, yet still entertaining
24 October 2012 | by Firas TurkiSee all my reviews

I think the film covers very important periods in Iraqi history through the story of the National Orchestra, particularly after the 2003 war. It manages to educate the viewer, and still provide him/her with the enjoyment every viewer is seeking. The film also gives the viewer access to the lives and personal experiences of those involved with the orchestra throughout its history, sharing the pain and also the humor. I saw the film with a group of friends, and we were all able (as Iraqis living in Baghdad) to relate to story told through the film, and I believe non-Iraqi viewers would get the chance to remotely experience the events that this critical part of the world has undergone. Well done.
