DTLA FILM FESTIVAL SHORTS:

Total Running Time 84 minutes / 5 films


As an integral part of this year's 7 Enemy Nations series, in this program we showcase short films from countries identified by the Trump administration as "enemy states" in its current attempt to re-write the U.S. immigration policy. Are the people and subjects of these films enemies of our nation? You decide....



SING FOR ME

Iraq | Documentary | 2015 | 38 min.

Director: Sama Waham

Additional Credits: Writer: Sama Waham, Producer: Sama Waham, Cinematographer: Sama Waham


Sing For Me is a poetic documentary that contemplates the notion of belonging and inherited nostalgia, while investigating the viewpoint of fractured diasporic identities and ethnic solidarity, and meditating on Mandaeanism; a fading ancient practice that goes back to Babylonian history. A personal journey that follows a river to meet Baghdad, the film travels through shared family memory and archival footage that provide a glimpse of Iraq’s defeated dreams of a modern and just society. The journey is guided by a familiar voice from the past, found on an old audiotape in an abandoned box, to a new exposition of ‘home’.
