My country my country

by Laura Poitras Documentary Usa 2006 90'

Eight months of solitary work in a country devastated by war and terrorism. This is what it took Laura Poitras to make this compelling film nominated in 2007 for an Oscar for Best Documentary. In this journey into the real conditions of the Iraqi people, the film shows the absurdities and contradictions of U.S. military occupation. Poitras recounts the experience of Dr. Riyadh, a Sunnite physician, who ran for office in the 2005 elections. Following him through his daily routine of caring for patients and courageously attending political meetings, My Country My Country paints a dramatic portrait of a country in the throes of chaos and violence under foreign domination, and a population's need for peace, democracy and freedom. <%YOUTUBE=LBMQI5sFQic%>
