Hayder Mousa Daffar in The Dream of Sparrows

The Dream of Sparrows: Iraq Eye Group: Vol. 1

2005 NR

Iraqi director Hayder Mousa Daffar examines life in Baghdad and Fallujah under U.S. occupation in this compelling documentary. Daffar and his crew braved extreme danger to interview a diverse group of Iraqis, from cab drivers to schoolchildren. Iraqi citizens candidly tell their opinions about the war and their hopes for their nation. Footage is unsettling as innocent civilians, and even one of Daffar's crew, are mortally wounded in crossfire.
