Congratulations to director Hussein Al-Asadi and producer Huda Al-Kadhimi! Their project – SHE WAS NOT ALONE – received a production grant from Culture Resource, which supports emerging artists from the Arab region.
Out of 424 applications, just 27 were selected.
SHE WAS NOT ALONE is a Close Up project from 2020 / 2021.
The film follows Fatima, a beautiful Iraqi pastoralist tending her beloved animals in the southern marshes, who faces sudden and unfamiliar harsh conditions due to climate change. Forced to move to the city and move in with her brother and his family, she loses her most cherished possessions: her animals and her independence.
