Synopsis

My Country, My Country
Americans are offered the unique opportunity to experience the U.S. occupation of Iraq from an insider's perspective in this documentary detailing the efforts of a devoted father and Sunni Muslim political candidate to better his country during the 2005 elections. As the U.S. government attempts to bring democracy to Iraq, Baghdad native Dr. Riyadh is faced with making the difficult decision of supporting the popular boycott of the elections, or fighting for a democracy that seems ever more unlikely with each passing day. With intimate footage of Dr. Riyadh's interactions with the public and candid interviews featuring the opinions of every-day Iraqis, director Laura Poitras' timely film offers an unbiased look at the unpredictable will of an occupied population. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
