Marooned in Iraq

Marooned in Iraq ★★ The Songsof My Homeland; Avazhaye Sarzamine Madariyam2002

Set between 1989 and 1991, this is a road movie about family and survival. Victimized by Suddam Hussein, Iraqi Kurds fled towards the Iranian border and an uncertain future in refugee camps. One such family is led by the aged Mirza (Ebrahimi), a locally famous singer who has summoned his two sons, Barat (Mohammadi) and Audeh (Rashtiani), to accompany him back to Iraq in order to find his ex-wife, Hanareh (Ghobadi), whom he has learned is in trouble and needs him. Armed robbers steal all their possessions on their journey and they are forced to walk, eventually coming to other camps of displaced people (one has orphaned children, other contains only women). Folk music and comic bits help break up the admittedly bleak story. Kurdish with subtitles. 97m/C VHS, DVD . IA Shahab Ebrahimi, Faeq Mohammadi, Alahmorad Rashtiani, Iran Ghobadi; D: Bahman Ghobadi; W: Bahman Ghobadi; C: Saed Nikzat, Shahriar Asadi; M: Arsalan Komkar.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
