Film: 'Zaman, The Man from the Reeds'

Zaman poster

A feature film that came out of Iraq in 2003, “Zaman, The Man from the Reeds” was shot under difficult circumstances, just before the war began. A quiet, lyrical picture in the realist tradition, it finds drama not in falling bombs, but in the aging Zaman's life-or-death quest to find the medicine that could save his beloved wife. A fine blend of fiction and documentary techniques.
