The enemy is invisible, and neither women nor children have a safe hideout. Our protagonist, 36-year-old Nori Sharif, is husband, father of four children, and a male nurse. He becomes a videographer, documenting life over several years in one of Iraq’s most dangerous provinces: Diyala.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBy following Nori we take part in his daily life. We are with him as another war erupts after the American retreat in 2011; a new war without fronts, uniforms or common rules. Without choosing sides, Nori records destruction as well as hope from this war zone. But it is the beginning of the end. The film stretches over a period of five years, beginning with the hope of a better future, to witnessing the growth of ISIS (the Islamic State), and eventually the fall of Nori’s home town. As Nori keeps filming throughout this period of time, he begins to turn the camera on himself.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eNori’s narrative represents persistence, hope and faith. But, in this new reality of being squeezed between two giant forces – ISIS on one side and the Iraqi militias on the other, is it possible to remain impartial and keep his family intact? Will he and his family survive, and be able to rebuild the country and the oasis that lies hidden behind the smoke and rubble?\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eBackground on the Issue\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"av-special-heading av-special-heading-h1 custom-color-heading blockquote modern-quote avia-builder-el-39 el_before_av_one_half avia-builder-el-first \"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"av-subheading av-subheading_below av_custom_color \"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFifteen years after the US-led invasion of Iraq the country continues to dominate the headlines with stories of sectarian violence, bombings, kidnappings, corruption and dire poverty, human displacement and a massive refugee crisis.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"flex_column av_one_half flex_column_div av-zero-column-padding first avia-builder-el-40 el_after_av_heading el_before_av_one_half \"\u003e\n\u003csection class=\"av_textblock_section \" itemscope=\"itemscope\" itemtype=\"https:\/\/schema.org\/CreativeWork\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"avia_textblock av_inherit_color \" itemprop=\"text\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eInstitutions and infrastructures are breaking down, and the de-stabilization of the region continues to reach new areas.

But in 2006-8 there was a change in character; ethnic sectarianism flared up and the violence became increasingly unpredictable and random. Families, tribes and communities were divided, and it became difficult to distinguish friend from foe. How can one give a truthful picture of this state of war when the areas are forbidden “no-go”-zones, and the survivors are without a voice?

The enemy is invisible, and neither women nor children have a safe hideout. Our protagonist, 36-year-old Nori Sharif, is husband, father of four children, and a male nurse.

We are with him as another war erupts after the American retreat in 2011; a new war without fronts, uniforms or common rules. Without choosing sides, Nori records destruction as well as hope from this war zone. But it is the beginning of the end. The film stretches over a period of five years, beginning with the hope of a better future, to witnessing the growth of ISIS (the Islamic State), and eventually the fall of Nori’s home town. As Nori keeps filming throughout this period of time, he begins to turn the camera on himself.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eNori’s narrative represents persistence, hope and faith.

The unusual documentary Kedi - an art house hit - captures the unique relationship that the city's dwellers and small businesses have with stray felines...  Kedi introduces a lot of folks who sell fish or run delis or wait on cafe tables, and captures how they relate with genuine affection to the cats who wander in and out, feeding them, rubbing their tummies, or brushing their fur. But the film isn't just about semi-pet-worship: there is plenty of philosophical musing here about cats being a bridge to God and serving to remind us of our best selves.

But the film isn't just about semi-pet-worship: there is plenty of philosophical musing here about cats being a bridge to God and serving to remind us of our best selves.

Farida, who is of Turkish decent, grew up in Russia at a time when the state discouraged religious expression, so she’s been trying to make up for lost time. She studies the Qur’an and prays five times a day, although her mother doesn’t see the point of the hijab. Farida also trades in her short-sleeved tops and above-the-knee skirts for more modest apparel. When she attended Islamic school as child, Shaila felt like a sinner until her mother bought her a hijab. After wearing it for 20 years, she has now entered politics, and decides that it doesn’t feel right anymore, so she only wears the hijab for special occasions. As she puts it, “I feel that Allah can read my heart, and that's what Islam is to me”. At the beginning of the film, Naima, a student, believes that wearing the Hijab is the right thing to do — although she isn’t sure the it’s mandatory, since religious scholars disagree on the point —but she comes to the same conclusion as Shaila, and stops wearing it. Since she wore the hijab for four years, those when know her express surprise, but she assures them that her beliefs haven’t changed. Her friend, Sarah, has her mother’s support for wearing the hijab, but her secular father criticizes the practice, calling it a relic from an earlier era. By allowing her subjects to speak for themselves, Yokoma offers viewers who are interested in religion and gender studies much food for thought in this documentary that is sure to provoke discussion.

As these women try to follow their faith and their hearts at the same time, the film unveils the intricate and complex effects of hijab on Muslim women, their families and communities, and the larger multicultural society in which they live.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/173013808?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" width=\"500\" height=\"281\" frameborder=\"0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eReviews \/ Quotes:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e“[Kyoko] truly crafted a documentary… We saw fascinating character arcs and felt quite close to your characters…  film that should travel to festivals and beyond.” \u003ci\u003e– \u003c\/i\u003eMarc Glassman, Film critic, publisher and professor, Ryerson University, MFA in Documentary Media program\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e “Between Allah and Me not only deals with a timely topic, but one that has great personal relevance to me.

Farida, who is of Turkish decent, grew up in Russia at a time when the state discouraged religious expression, so she’s been trying to make up for lost time. She studies the Qur’an and prays five times a day, although her mother doesn’t see the point of the hijab. Farida also trades in her short-sleeved tops and above-the-knee skirts for more modest apparel. When she attended Islamic school as child, Shaila felt like a sinner until her mother bought her a hijab. After wearing it for 20 years, she has now entered politics, and decides that it doesn’t feel right anymore, so she only wears the hijab for special occasions. As she puts it, “I feel that Allah can read my heart, and that's what Islam is to me”. At the beginning of the film, Naima, a student, believes that wearing the Hijab is the right thing to do — although she isn’t sure the it’s mandatory, since religious scholars disagree on the point —but she comes to the same conclusion as Shaila, and stops wearing it. Since she wore the hijab for four years, those when know her express surprise, but she assures them that her beliefs haven’t changed. Her friend, Sarah, has her mother’s support for wearing the hijab, but her secular father criticizes the practice, calling it a relic from an earlier era. By allowing her subjects to speak for themselves, Yokoma offers viewers who are interested in religion and gender studies much food for thought in this documentary that is sure to provoke discussion.

After the regime fell from power in 2001, a fledgling free press emerged and a photography revolution was born. Now, as foreign troops and media withdraw, Afghanistan is left to stand on its own, and so are its journalists. Set in a modern Afghanistan bursting with color and character, FRAME BY FRAME follows four Afghan photojournalists as they navigate an emerging and dangerous media landscape – reframing Afghanistan for the world, and for themselves. Through cinema vérité, intimate interviews, powerful photojournalism, and never-before-seen archival footage shot in secret during the Taliban regime, the film connects audiences with four humans in the pursuit of the truth.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/141104728?title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" width=\"500\" height=\"281\" frameborder=\"0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eAwards \u0026amp; Selections\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eSXSW - World Premiere\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eHotDocs - Top Ten Audience Favorite\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAFI Docs - Official Selection\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAshland Independent Film Festival - Audience Award\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eBFI London - Grierson Award Nominee\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCamden Int'l Film Festival - Best Documentary\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eHighly Recommended by Video Librarian\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\"Although 15 years have passed since U.S.-led military forces invaded and occupied Afghanistan, it often seems that very little progress has been made in the nation’s movement away from Taliban-era oppression towards a 21st-century concept of a modern republic. Filmmakers Alexandria Bombach and Mo Scarpelli’s documentary details how the concept of a free Afghani press is struggling to take root here, profiling four local photojournalists—including Farzana Wahidy and her Pulitzer Prize-winning husband Massoud Hossaini—as they face skepticism, hostility, and threatened violence while trying to document events in a country that is caught in an endless struggle between forces that want to maintain a rigid Islamic theocracy and those trying to inch Afghanistan towards becoming a progressive state where a spirited independent press can operate without fear of reprisal. Considering that very little current news from Afghanistan is relayed via the U.S. media, Frame by Frame offers an invaluable, albeit also harrowing, glimpse into a nation that doesn’t seem to have benefited much from the occupation by U.S. and European forces. Indeed, the Afghanistan captured here by the photojournalists appears to be very much locked in a Taliban mind-frame. Highly recommended. Aud: C, P. (P.

After the regime fell from power in 2001, a fledgling free press emerged and a photography revolution was born. Now, as foreign troops and media withdraw, Afghanistan is left to stand on its own, and so are its journalists. Set in a modern Afghanistan bursting with color and character, FRAME BY FRAME follows four Afghan photojournalists as they navigate an emerging and dangerous media landscape – reframing Afghanistan for the world, and for themselves.

Filmmakers Alexandria Bombach and Mo Scarpelli’s documentary details how the concept of a free Afghani press is struggling to take root here, profiling four local photojournalists—including Farzana Wahidy and her Pulitzer Prize-winning husband Massoud Hossaini—as they face skepticism, hostility, and threatened violence while trying to document events in a country that is caught in an endless struggle between forces that want to maintain a rigid Islamic theocracy and those trying to inch Afghanistan towards becoming a progressive state where a spirited independent press can operate without fear of reprisal. Considering that very little current news from Afghanistan is relayed via the U.S. media, Frame by Frame offers an invaluable, albeit also harrowing, glimpse into a nation that doesn’t seem to have benefited much from the occupation by U.S. and European forces. Indeed, the Afghanistan captured here by the photojournalists appears to be very much locked in a Taliban mind-frame. Highly recommended. Aud: C, P. (P.

Ten years ago, Yousef left his wife and three small children in Palestine to start a new life for them all in San Francisco. For the past decade he has worked day and night to build a small business, save money, and become part of his adopted community while still trying to stay connected from afar. The film profiles Yousef’s life in San Francisco and the challenges of the immigration process for his family. It then follows his journey back to his fractured homeland to finally reunite with his wife and kids. But a lot has changed, and Yousef must confront the current realities in both his family and his country and decide if a new life in America is really still the right path for them to take. \u003cb\u003eCORNER STORE\u003c\/b\u003e faithfully documents Yosuef’s resoundingly universal tale of hard won choices for a better life, now set on the back drop of San Francisco and modern-day Palestine. Compelling and emotionally-engaging, the film is a story about community relationships, cultural understanding, immigration, and the politics of living in an occupied territory. Even more, the film is about family, the sacrifices people make for each other, and the deep connections that bind us all together.  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e  \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/59944664\" allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- Starz Denver Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- Big Sky Documentary Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWINNER of Audience Award Best Documentary Feature- San Fransisco Indiefest\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- St. Louis International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\/ Reviews\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"Corner Store is a sincere film that students respond to.  Its intimate view of a family's struggle to immigrate to the United States provides students with an honest look in to the immigration process.  Students are engaged through this film and discussions about the film are complex and stimulate the desire to look further into the subject.\"\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e-Scott Pettit, Social Sciences Teacher, Summit Academy High School\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"A moving insight into one man’s struggle to reconcile the kinship he feels for his adopted Bay Area home with his Middle Eastern roots.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e -

Ten years ago, Yousef left his wife and three small children in Palestine to start a new life for them all in San Francisco. For the past decade he has worked day and night to build a small business, save money, and become part of his adopted community while still trying to stay connected from afar. The film profiles Yousef’s life in San Francisco and the challenges of the immigration process for his family. It then follows his journey back to his fractured homeland to finally reunite with his wife and kids. But a lot has changed, and Yousef must confront the current realities in both his family and his country and decide if a new life in America is really still the right path for them to take. \u003cb\u003eCORNER STORE\u003c\/b\u003e faithfully documents Yosuef’s resoundingly universal tale of hard won choices for a better life, now set on the back drop of San Francisco and modern-day Palestine. Compelling and emotionally-engaging, the film is a story about community relationships, cultural understanding, immigration, and the politics of living in an occupied territory. Even more, the film is about family, the sacrifices people make for each other, and the deep connections that bind us all together.  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e  \u003ciframe src=\"http:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/59944664\" allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eAwards:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- Starz Denver Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- Big Sky Documentary Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eWINNER of Audience Award Best Documentary Feature- San Fransisco Indiefest\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eOfficial Selection- St. Louis International Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eQuotes\/ Reviews\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"Corner Store is a sincere film that students respond to.  Its intimate view of a family's struggle to immigrate to the United States provides students with an honest look in to the immigration process.  Students are engaged through this film and discussions about the film are complex and stimulate the desire to look further into the subject.\"\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e-Scott Pettit, Social Sciences Teacher, Summit Academy High School\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"A moving insight into one man’s struggle to reconcile the kinship he feels for his adopted Bay Area home with his Middle Eastern roots.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - New York Times\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Yet it is home, and what home actually means to us is the insistent heart of Bruens' quietly powerful film.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - The San Francisco Chronicle\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Corner Store is a remarkable achievement of documentary filmmaking; immortalizing the everyday to express a facet of human life.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - Bay Area Guardian\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Bruens’ Corner Store... refrains from making Elhaj’s struggle into melting pot boilerplate, presenting a remarkable portrait of hope kept alive under the duress of the quotidian.\" \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - SF 360 \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Community, history, and love are the thematic strands running through the various frames of the locally made documentary “Corner Store.” \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e - Beyond Chron\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e “Bruens, without a trace of sentimentality, shows that Youssef and his family and their friends in Bethlehem are just like us.” \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e – Culture Vulture\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca title=\"stream-link\" target=\"_blank\" href=\"http:\/\/www.docuseek2.com\/ce-cns-es\" style=\"color: #000000;\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eStream\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e"}
