Turtles Can Fly


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.
