I got a bit of flak from y'all about saying there were too many docs about Iraq. Come on, guys. I KNOW it's important. Perhaps the MOST important political issue out there today. But that doesn't mean we have to suck it up and watch bad filmmaking, does it? Anyway, I just found this interview with John Sinno, founder of Arab Film Distribution, producer of IRAQ IN FRAGMENTS, and previously referenced here.
I felt mildly validated when he said, "The thing is, and documentaries already are at a disadvantage for distribution. A documentary about Iraq is even more at a disadvantage. And couple that with an over-saturation in the market - that basically kept a lot of people away from distributing this film."
