"The Iraq you won't see on CNN" - The Hour

The new critically acclaimed award-winning film from Jason Longley, director of Gaza Strip, shown in gorgeous 35mm real film format. This Montréal premiere screening is a fundraiser for the Unite!Concordia Afghanistan campaign (half of the door donations). Come early to get a good seat!

Iraq In Fragments illuminates post-war Iraq in three acts, building a vivid picture of a country pulled in different directions by religion and ethnicity. Filmed in cinema verité style, the film powerfully explores the lives of ordinary Iraqis: people whose thoughts, beliefs, aspirations, and concerns are at once personal and illustrative of larger issues in Iraq today. (For full synopsis, please visit the Cinema Politica website).
