Directed by Nina Davenport
In the wake of Operation Iraqi Freedom, American actor Liev Schreiber had an idealistic thought: rescue an Iraqi film student from the rubble of his country and bring him to Prague to work as an intern on a Hollywood movie he is directing (Everything Is Illuminated). What promises to be a heartwarming tale quickly becomes a mirror of the complex intercultural realities that have plagued the United States’ war in Iraq. Director Nina Davenport sets out to document Schreiber’s charitable effort, but soon finds herself embroiled in an escalating power struggle between herself as filmmaker and her young Iraqi subject. 2007, U.S., video, 92 minutes.
