Heavy Metal in Bagdhad, a documentary

8 06 2008

This feature film documentary is unique in it’s subject. The filmmakers tried to track down Accrassicauda (which is Latin for ‘Black Scorpion’), the only heavy metal band in Baghdad. In this 90 minute documentary you can follow the filmmakers and the band and learn about life since the fall of Sadam Hussein in 2003. It shows you the hard life of a musician as well as a person in Iraq.

A documentary showing the true heart and spirit of music, in a place where you would’nt expect it. The film was part of the selection of the Toronto International Film Festival in 2007, and in 2008 it was part of the selection of the Berlin International Film Festival.

You can order the dvd on the official website. I suggest you watch this movie, it’s way worth it.
