  1. Hey Ilka, great to see another local film blog, especially one focussed on documentaries. Good luck with it, and maybe we’ll bump into each other at Hot Docs this year.

  2. Like what you’re doing Ilka. As you know, I heart docs, too!

  3. Love this blog Ilka!

    I wanted to share with you a feature doc that I am currently producing and that we are currently raising post-production funds for (check out our Kickstarter here -http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cassidyd/barzan-the-movie). I love the site and thought you would find our film particularly compelling.

    Our film explores the controversial issues of immigration, xenophobia and the price of security in the 21st century in the US. This film is an epic geopolitical journey from the front lines of the Iran-Iraq War to the refugee camps of Pakistan and finally into the opaque government agencies charged with keeping us safe, even at the cost of freedom.

    Our story confronts these issues through the lens of one man’s story, Sam “Barzan” Malkandi. Malkandi was an Iraqi-American immigrant deported back to Iraq after investigations that potentially linked him to high level Al-Qaeda operative.

    We are very passionate about our film and want to tell the world about it! You can see our trailer at the Kickstarter site too!

    Thank you for letting me post here and I hope you’ll take the time to check it out. I really love the site and thought you’d enjoy taking a look at our film. Please dont hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to hear more!

    Thank you!
    Cassidy
