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’.
