Free
RIDM Film Festival - "My Country, My Country"
My Country, My Country
Laura Poitras
United States | 2006 | 89 min | English/Arabic, English subtitles | RIDM Film Screening

Can a foreign army impose a Western democratic system on the Muslim world? Is it possible to hold successful elections in a country at war? Filming during the months preceding the January 2005 elections in Iraq, Laura Poitras considers these paradoxes and the tragic consequences of the American occupation. Travelling alone, at a time when few Western journalists dared to enter the country, she captures the war and the elections from the inside.
