Movie Info

Sinan Antoon is a journalist, novelist, and poet who left his native Iraq to escape the unstable and repressive political environment. In the summer of 2003, though, Antoon returned to the city of Baghdad with a camera crew in tow, and as he wandered the once-mighty city, which had been pockmarked by political conflict and war, he interviewed as many people as he could, ranging from politicians and intellectuals to shopkeepers, cab drivers, and American soldiers. The result, About Baghdad, offers a wide variety of perspectives on the city and how years of conflict in a number of forms have changed Baghdad and its people. The film also offers a sampling of Antoon's writings about Iraq, as well as showcasing the works of other Iraqi artists.more

Audience Reviews for About Baghdad


Excellent documetnary. One story that got me was of how this university library was destroyed and they lost all the dissertations since the 70s. I think it just showed how the military has no scruples about destroying cultural history.
