My Country, My Country

Friday January 17, 6 pm
Jackman Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario

Directed by Laura Poitras
2006, 114 min.

Working alone in Iraq over eight months, director/cinematographer Laura Poitras creates an extraordinarily intimate portrait of Iraqis living under U.S. occupation. Her principal focus is Dr. Riyadh, an Iraqi medical doctor, father of six and Sunni political candidate. Unfolding like a narrative drama, My Country, My Country follows the agonizing predicament and gradual descent of one man caught in the tragic contradictions of the U.S. occupation of Iraq and its project to spread democracy in the Middle East.

This screening is part of a film series inspired by the exhibition Hito Steyerl: This is the future.
