  • Marooned in Iraq

    2003. Iran. Directed by Bahman Ghobadi. With Shahab Ebrahimi, Faegh Mohammadi. During the Iraqi bombing of Kurdistan in 1991, an old Iranian Kurd singer, accompanied by his musician sons, searches for his ex-wife, Hanareh. Hanareh, also a singer, has gone to Iraqi Kurdistan. The film tells the story of the band's journey, their music, and a nation that has always been adrift. The people approach life during wartime as a game, celebrating life through music, merging tragedy with humor, and improvising against great obstacles. In Farsi; English subtitles. 108 min.
