Amal’s Garden

Nadia Shihab  |  Arab Documentary Film Program  |  2012  |  Iraq
Amal and Mustafa have lived a long life together in northern Iraq. When Amal decides to finally renovate her home after a decade of war, 85 year-old Mustafa retreats to the melodic wilderness of the garden. A lyrical and intimate documentary on companionship, memory and new beginnings, Amal’s Garden is the moving portrait of one couple moving forward in a new Iraq, where, as one world is disappearing, another is being born.
