Our River... Our Sky

Our River Our Sky

An Arabic language narrative feature film by Maysoon Pachachi, 2022

Produced and directed by Maysoon Pachachi


Baghdad, Iraq. Winter 2006.

3 years after the US-led invasion.

Extreme sectarian violence, nightly curfews.

And the ongoing occupation of the country.

You never know what you will see when you step outside your front door in the morning.

Every day you find the strength to ‘act life’ and renew a fragile sense of hope.


A web of intersecting stories describes a collective drama happening in this time and place
