Cinema In Baghdad

Via New York Times, Defying Terror, Filmgoers Attend a Festival in Baghdad

"We're trying to send a message to people outside Iraq that this is a real country, not just a hole for terrorists," said the festival's organizer, Nizar al-Rawi, a graphic designer who is president of the Contemporary Visual Arts Society here. "We have thousands of years of art and knowledge. We can establish social life here."

Message recieved, loud and clear. Great stuff.
