Heavy Metal In Baghdad (2007)

nascer em baghdad e tocar este tipo de música não é a mesma coisa que ser um punk snob de Umea. Aqui há razões para ter medo...
segundo o NY Post:

"JUST when I thought the war in Iraq had been examined from every possible angle, along comes "Heavy Metal in Baghdad," a fascinating documentary on the country's only heavy metal band, Acrassicauda.

Hipster filmmakers Suroosh Alvi and Eddy Moretti follow the four young men who make up the band from the days when Saddam Hussein ruled, and they were forced to include a song praising the dictator in their shows, through their struggle to survive the bloody Iraqi civil war, to their self-imposed exile in Syria.

Alvi and Moretti risked their lives going to Iraq to film the band, paying $1,500 a day for an entourage of bodyguards (as many as 12 at a time), a translator and two cars.

"I don't want my kid to grow up in this situation," says the bass player, Firas. "I'm trying to get out of this country, to go somewhere where I can find peace for me and my family."

The low-budget movie's technical qualities aren't always the best, but considering the conditions under which the filmmakers worked, it's amazing that "Heavy Metal in Baghdad" was made at all."
