I recently watched The Situation (IMDb), by Philip Haas. It attempts to bring out the side of Iraq that is often neglected in the media. The review on indieWIRE is a little harsh on the timidity, especially given that i know they had serious problems with funding and, later, with finding a willing distributor. I wouldnt disagree, however. I also wouldnt give the acting as much credit. Many scenes come off as unconvincing. Perhaps this is due to the most of the actors’ lack of Arabic fluency. This review covers it significantly better.
I recommend watching it if you come across it.
