Nowhere to Hide

Zaradasht Ahmed / Norway, Sweden, Iraq / 2016 / 86 mins / Arabic with English subtitles / Documentary

“Nowhere to Hide should be required viewing for anyone with an opinion about the refugee crisis.”
SCREEN DAILY

Winner of IDFA’s top accolade for Best Feature-Length Documentary, one humble paramedic with a camera shows us his Iraq in Nowhere to Hide. An insider’s look at a country left in shambles by a power vacuum and an ethnic civil war. It’s Nori Sharif’s vocation to help the injured, but as Iraq’s Diyala Province goes from bad to worse to ISIS in the aftermath of American troop withdrawal, it’s his own life and family he must protect. Harrowing images of a land torn asunder mark this dire documentation of a man and country’s survival. Hiding may not be an option, but hope is.
