True Stories - Life After The Fall
Tuesday 21st July 2009
10pm to 00:20am
American and British soldiers were not the only people invading Iraq in 2003. The removal of Saddam Hussein made it possible for thousands of Iraqis to return home from exile. This film, shot over four years from October 2003, chronicles that readjustment from the perspective of Kasim Abid as he reacquaints himself with his home town after more than 30 years away.
His friends and family are exactly those usually forgotten in such situations: the decent, diligent people who, amid chaos and carnage, struggle to maintain their once-ordinary lives, with humbling grace, courage, ingenuity and humour. The family had suffered through the constraints and losses of dictatorship and had somehow stayed together, survived, borne their scars, and were ready to embrace change when it finally came. Their personal story is a metaphor for the bigger story - a reflection of the enormous upheavals in Iraq since the end of Saddam’s rule.
As the film unfolds their mood gradually moves from fragile hope and celebration, to a growing sense of disappointment and despair as the situation in the country becomes more chaotic and fragmented, and as violence moves ever closer to them.
