Watch: Witness the Tragedy of Displacement in Exclusive ‘Iraqi Odyssey’ Clip

Iraqi Odyssey Switzerland’s official submission for this year’s Academy Awards, is a sprawling historical documentary from writer-director Samir that tells the story of a globalized middle-class Iraqi family who are scattered all over the world, presenting a moving homage to the frustrated democratic dreams of a people successively plagued by dictatorship, war and foreign occupation.

In the exclusive clip from the documentary epic, Samir explores the impact of the cinema and the struggles of Iraqi displacement.


Iraqi Odyssey will premiere in theaters November 27.
