American Baghdad is a short film that documents the struggles of leaving a homeland behind. In the film, Iraqis speak candidly about the process of becoming refugees in California.
It’s a necessary and humanizing portrait: They were displaced due to America’s war in Iraq, and were among the small percentage of those who were granted refugee status and permitted to immigrate.
El Cajon, a county in San Diego, has one of the highest concentrations of Iraqi refugees in America, and a majority of these refugees are Chaldean, a Christian minority in Iraq.To learn more about the film, visit http://americanbaghdad.com/. American Baghdad is produced by Atlas Brave.
