Iraq / 2020 / 61mins / Arabic & English / English subtitles
Belgian multidisciplinary artist Francis Alÿs has travelled frequently to Iraq over the last decade. He intended to make a film about children drawing lines in the sand in the remote mountain village near Mosul, a caricature of the Sykes-Picot line that bisected the region in 1916, which ultimately created the country Iraq. Struck by how little the children knew about their own country, he decided to dramatise key moments in history with the children, through games and play, to reenact a century of Iraqi history in their very own way.
