Because There Are so Many: Iraq (HDV, 7 minutes, 2009)
Documentary project where four Iraqi men discuss their flight from Iraq following the U.S. invasion in 2003. Between them – an interpreter for the U.S. military, a computer technician for a military contractor, an English professor, and an oil ministry employee – a dialogue emerges about their lives as refugees in Sweden. They discuss their divergent approaches to coping with trauma, identity, and representation, as well as their ambivalent feelings towards U.S. foreign policy. In collaboration with Benj Gerdes.
