‘Son of Babylon’ first Iraqi film to be selected for both Sundance & Berlin IFF’s 2010, unearthing the story of the 1,000,000+ missing persons in Iraq

“Son of Babylon” is a poignant tale of a boy and his grandmother searching for the link that binds them, his father and her son, in the tumult of Iraq weeks after Saddam Hussein’s fall in 2003. The boy’s father had never returned from the Persian Gulf war of 1991, and their search takes them from the Kurdish north to the rest of the Arabic-speaking country, where they meet truck drivers, military veterans, clerics and pilgrims on the same kind of quest.

Despite acclaim that led to the film’s distribution in 10 countries and invitations to 75 festivals, this film had yet to be screened in Iraq.

For so many years Iraq is being portrayed by journalists and politicians, writing their own narratives, sometimes from abroad, this film provides a new opportunity, a voice where there was not one before.
