2 Men From Iraq

This is a film I made spring of 2006 about two men I knew from our community in Tucson. I hadn't really known their stories until I interviewed them for the film.

Well I really liked the interview it is so true.

about your message, unfortunately I did not get it. I'm so sorry but especially this week I can not attend the meeting cuz I have ALOT of planning to do for the 10 days of Muharram may allah help me! The small arabs community of woman has chosen few of us me and 2 other girls to plan the whole 10 days in different houses and you know the lectures, dua's, and Latmeeyat. So With school it's hectic. But Allah kareem.

Samar: Thanks for watching the film... feel free to share the link with others. This film played at the Fox theatre which is one of the biggest in Tucson. Inshallah this film sees many more screens like the Fox

well I dunno we're about 16-20 woman. The only thing is we are doing everything in arabic. Everyone just planned it to be that way although there are few woman who are not arabs but still join. You know the Language is a big factor I guess.

I believe we will be having people reading in both arabic and farsi and possibly in english as well. I am going to try to prepare something for the nights the community is gathering. language is generally a big factor.
