‘Dance With A Bullet - Dhyaa Khaled Joda’

14 Mar.'22
- 19:00

Dance With a Bullet is a documentary film — spanning over ten years — that tells two intertwined stories: that of Dhyaa Joda, a 23-year old Iraqi filmmaker, and that of Anmar Taha, a 19-year old Iraqi dancer. In 2004 Anmar was shot in Baghdad. As a result, in fear of his life, he fled Iraq. As did Dhyaa.  Since then — over the course of many years and in several countries — the filmmaker has continued to document the dancer. 

Dhyaa Khalid Joda was born in 1979 in Baghdad. He studied cinema at the University of Fine Arts in Baghdad and worked for TV channels Aljazeera, Alarabya and Alhurra. He was also cameraman on the documentary film Operation Filmmaker by Nina Davenport. He left Baghdad in November 2005 and currently lives in Belgium.

The screening will be followed by a conversation in English with Dhyaa Joda (director) and Nazar Hussein Mhawi Al-Sudani (Director of Photography), moderated by Livia Tinca (programmer).
