NICE BOMBS WORLD PREMIERE TONIGHT AUG 17 AT MUSIC BOX
habibi
"Nowadays, documentaries are increasingly taking on the trappings of political stump speeches... But Nice Bombs comes off more like a good book: Each chapter reveals a new layer of Alshaibi’s complicated relationship with his family— and with the war in Iraq."

"It pulls off the rare feat of being 'important' without forcing a political agenda down the audience’s throat."-- Jason Mojica, Time Out Chicago, August 10

"A surprisingly warm first-person video diary, blending a series of reunions with relatives and footage of the bazaars, streets, homes and everyday perils of life in post-Saddam, mid-occupation and mid-chaos Iraq."
-- Michael Phillips, CHICAGO TRIBUNE

"Distance tends to simplify our view of anything, and this video humanizes the situation on the ground mostly by complicating it..."
-- Jonathan Rosenbaum, Critics Choice, CHICAGO READER

wow! congratulations usama on such amazing reviews!!

i can't wait for your film to reach the pac nw!!


I heard about your film on Slit's journal. It sounds AMAZING. I can't wait to see it. The reviews sound compelling. And frankly, I'd like to see a film from an insider perspective, rather than from an American perspective.

I have a huge interest in film-making, so I'm sure I will enjoy it.

P.S.- I added you. Hope you don't mind.
