Turtles Can Fly (2004)

****
Iran/Iraq

The first film to be shot in Kurdistan after the US invasion (though the story itself takes place during the lead-up to the war). It's a strange, disconcerting portrait of a world where children take on adult roles (often with an eerie sense of resignation) and where grown adults are rare and thoroughly ineffectual.

wr/dir: Bahman Ghobadi
cast: Soran Ebrahim, Avaz Latif, Saddam Hossein Feysal, Hiresh Feysal Rahman, Abdol Rahman Karim, Ajil Zibari
