Uncertain States Iraqi Odyssey

Film Screening, Lecture and Discussion

In his film Iraqi Odyssey, Swiss-Iraqi director Samir recounts the history of Iraq since the end of the colonial period by tracing the trajectory of his own extended Iraqi family over several generations. His family came from a secular yet also religious middle class, which was always progressive and, at times, tended towards communism. Over the last fifty years, his family has been scattered across the globe. In exploring this theme, Samir’s film fuses the political and the private in an exceptionally vibrant way, testifying to an Iraqi modernity now seemingly forgotten.
