Storyline

"Nowhere to Hide" follows a man - the medic and father Nori Sharif - through 5 years of dramatic change in the war-torn Diyala-province; one of the most dangerous provinces in the middle of Iraq. From the time of the American retreat to the fall of Nori's home town, we follow him filming stories of survivors. In a world trapped between ISIS and the different Iraqi Militias, his integrity and humanitarian vision is the only thing that drives him to continue against all odds. Even when, as last man standing, he is forced to turn the camera towards himself. We are given a unique insight into one of the worlds most dangerous and inaccessible areas - the "triangle of death" in central Iraq. We get to know and hear the stories of the people who live there; survivors of this 'new war" that has become the norm - where the enemy is invisible, and there is nowhere to hide.

Important glance behind the curtains of a war-ridden area
17 January 2017 | by otharius-25025See all my reviews

This is not a thorough review, but merely a plea for a larger audience to see this movie. It revolves around the paramedic, Nori, working in the war-ridden province of Diyala, Iraq.

It is in large filmed by Nori himself, at times with a hand-held camera, and at other times with a mobile phone, and gives a rare insight to the ever deteriorating situation that mares the area.

Rather than writing anymore about this,I urge you to watch it yourselves, to gain a broader understanding revolving the situation concerning so many refugees today.

It is truly worth the watch, albeit at times being both graphic and heartbreaking.
