iraqi cinema is making a comeback in a bid to help heal wounds from the war the industry shut down because of the decades of conflict now the first iraqi made film in twenty five years has been released are cars from iran can. the anticipation on the faces of the cinemagoers says it's cool. they've dressed up and come out to show support for the first iraq a major film in twenty five years sanctions international boycotts and the security situation have all combined to destroy the cinema industry the journey is one man's dream. is but director and producer he says the film gives a sober moral perspective on the wall that devastated iraq killed a million people according to human rights groups as well as creating a refugee an orphan crisis. at the premiere earlier this month he thanked his cost improve and explains why he made the film would help to boycott the sanction. and
then and then after that the war of the occupation and often not to you know about what happened and the sectarian violence and then we ended with doris but we many know also anarky to get back again and that's what you learn as iraqi and we are. coming to the most point we go in to challenge our limits and to go further and thought of that and thought of that and this is this is the hope that we are looking for and you know. for iraq e. filmmakers and producers working to revive the industry persuading audiences to watch is going to be an uphill battle particularly when the subject matter is so serious as the end credits roll some critics deemed it a success i'm going to have more up and get him and everyone dreams of watching an iraqi produced film because for a long time iraqi cinema had no productions at all we need to see a film we don't have film festivals and we don't have patients that share iraqi
films in the three weeks off to the premiere of the movie made in iraq has failed to capture the imagination of many who prefer foreign films. baghdad has a thriving cinema scene in shopping malls hollywood and egyptian film productions dominate to make money and their popular iraqi cinema was once regarded as some of the best in the region the making used to take place across iraq and indeed baghdad then they would edit them and distribute them to places like this the third of all this was one of the most populous animals in baghdad it's now fallen into complete disrepair and on occasion bootleg western movies but there really is no iraq e film industry to speak of that the filmmaker was able to get the movie made is remarkable but it would seem only a small audience is interested in what it's about iraqi filmmakers say they will continue to try and persuade iraqi audiences to watch domestic productions that means competing with hollywood blockbusters and egyptian films that are popular
across the arab world is one hollywood saying goes we don't make it we make money imran khan baghdad like i said to go out around the world to mock people are being encouraged to live in the dock for an hour to try to help environment one of the first cities just switch off will be sydney and australia andrew thomas is there how big an event has become. well it's grown and grown over the eleven years since it started it started here in sydney and you should see the harbor bridge behind me threw up its lights at any moment now from getting it's right which should be about eight seconds of whites or keep an eye on the backdrop behind me it's eight thirty pm wherever you are in the world but it takes place and as you can see. the bridge now it's gone dark and the city lights as well many of them. anywhere in the world the idea of it being in the middle of march is the march equinox the closest saturday to the facts when most places have
at least some degree of darkness. and one hundred eighty seven countries took part in some capacity last year having begun in just one country here in australia back in two thousand and seven and as a site famous landmarks will go dark as well as buildings and this should spread right from the east going west over the next twenty hours or so and till it reaches well the west coast of the u.s. hawaii ok and what actual impact does that of place electricity have for now is it really just symbolic. eighties mostly symbolic the electricity is minimal but that's not to say that it doesn't matter because when people turn off their lights they're reminded of why they doing it they're doing it to help keep global warming down and the children particularly this is a moment they can reflect on throughout the year and they can try and consume less energy throughout the year at least that's what those behind this campaign say and it does have some impact as well as a brand
a lot of environmental campaigns around the world use as a brand that they can hook their local campaign around and that's happened from stopping drilling in the arctic by the russians there's been a forest planted in uganda on the ground as well five hundred thousand. yes this particular route that we're now just to hear is symbolic but the broader campaign has a bit more meat to it than that right andrew thomas thank you very much for that and obviously it will be on it in as many countries as possible including us here in doha to switch off those lights as soon as we can their lines the syrian rebels in the southern part of eastern guitar surrendering thousands of fighters and civilians are being taken to live at least as the last rebel stronghold outside of the capital damascus we're also hearing about. region being under attack over the last couple of days and that the conditions that people are facing
