Filmfest 2005

Hassan is a young Iraqi documentary filmmaker in his mid thirties, who tries to redefine his life in a materially, spiritually and ideologically distorted city. After the American attack on Iraq he decides to start filming a documentary about Baghdad and searches for protagonists in his neighborhood and among friends. By the end, no one, not even Hassan, can tell us if these people are real or only figments of Hassan's imagination. The first feature length film shot on location in Baghdad after the war, the title refers not only to the outdated film stock that was used to make the film, but also to the generation of Iraqis that have been isolated from the world for decades.
