Tracing the emigrations of his family over more than half a century, this riveting documentary epic from acclaimed expatriate Iraqi filmmaker Samir pays moving homage to the frustrated democratic dreams of people successively plagued by the horrors of dictatorship, war, and the foreign occupation of Iraq.
THE STORIES BEHIND THE NUMBERS
In the headlines, migration is presented through numbers, figures and geopolitical considerations, while personal stories are forgotten. GLOBAL NOMADS curates 17 European films that give a face to the refugee crisis and focus on the stories behind the numbers. Thanks to this project, the films will be promoted to audiences worldwide and distributed on all major VOD platforms on 20 June 2017 – World Refugee Day.
