SAFAR Film Festival: My Lost Country + Q&ACert-TBC
Iraqi theater director Mohsen Sadoon Yasin has spent much of his life in involuntary exile. In this deeply personal documentary, Mohsen’s daughter uses family photographs, theatre posters, newspaper clippings and sound recordings to track her father’s global travels. The film presents a patchwork of imaginings, textures and references to theater, rituals and Sumerian cosmology. There is also the constant presence of Iraq, the inaccessible core that Mohsen Sadoon Yasin carries within him, along with the folk songs still echoing in his mind.
SAFAR Film Festival screening followed by a Q&A with the film’s director Ishtar Yasin Gutiérrez chaired by filmmaker Ashtar Al Khirsan.

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
