Turtles Can Fly

4

The first film to be made in Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein, the starkly photographed Turtles Can Fly focuses on the orphaned, maimed and traumatised children at a Kurdish refugee settlement on the eve of the second Gulf War. Using an entirely non-professional cast, writer-director Bahman Ghobadi (A Time For Drunken Horses) finds humanity and resilience amidst the nightmarish suffering.
