26th TIDF: Greek Premiere

Milo, a strong-willed feminist, discovers the long-sought power to wander around freely in Baghdad by dressing in her brother’s clothes. Khalili, a young and ambitious filmmaker, realizes that his camera would be the strongest of all weapons. In the aftermath of the 2019 revolution, Milo and Khalili are the faces, the eyes, and the voices of an Iraqi youth who is relentlessly fighting for a better future. An insight into the hopes and broken dreams of a new generation that has known nothing but war since the U.S.-led occupation.
