Salam Pax: From Blog to Book to Film

Salam Pax has parlayed his blog into a documentary film about Baghdad, which has recently been screened at the Rotterdam Film Festival.

Following the fascination with the writing of Salam Pax – not his real name – he began a regular column in The Guardian newspaper and was given a crash course in documentary film-making.

For the film he travelled Iraq to document the changing landscape of the country and the problems it has faced since the invasion, speaking to ordinary Iraqis about their experiences.
