Turtles Can Fly!

Turtles Can Fly // Directed by Kurdish-Iranian director Bahman Ghobadi, the film was the first to be filmed in Iraq after the fall of Saddam Hussein.

Set in a Kurdish refugee camp on the Iraqi-Turkish border on the eve of the US invasion of Iraq, the film follows 13 year old boy named ‘Satellite’ who serves as the de facto leader of the refugee camp thanks to his ability to install satellite dishes and translate news of the pending US invasion.  Organizing fellow orphans into landmine-collection teams so that they can eke out a living, he is all business until the arrival of a clairvoyant boy and his quiet, beautiful sister.
