IRAQ IN FRAGMENTS ; background
Suddenly the flood gates had opened. There was no government in Iraq and I could film whatever I wanted as long as I could stay alive.

My guess was that I would have about a year before either a new authoritarian government would be put in power or Iraq would descend into civil war and become too dangerous to work in. I needed to make my film while it was still possible.

This amazing Indie film won the accolades of the Sundance and many other Film Festivals. Excerpts are available at Fareed Zakaria excellent PBS show from 11/16 “Foreign Exchange – Where America meets the world”
