Return to Kirkuk: A Year in the Fire
Twenty-five years after being bound and tortured by Saddam Hussein's secret police force, Kurdish exile, activist, and actor Karzan Sherabayani returns to his hometown of Kirkuk to cast a ballot in the first democratic election since the fall of Hussein's regime and filmmaker Claudio von Planta captures every captivating moment of the voyage. By addressing such hot-button issues as whether Iraqi Kurdistan should remain part of Iraq or evolve into an independent nation, von Planta offers a thoughtful meditation on some of the most pressing issues faced by the fledgling Iraqi government.
