Maureen Duffy: Postcards from the International Authors Forum
KING'S COLLEGE LONDON, 2017
Postcard from Iraq: photographs and film by Mouayad Sary
Mouayad Sary was born in 1979 in Baghdad. He is a documentary maker interested in the history and civilizations of the Middle East. He lives in Sweden and is a graduate of Oriental Studies at Uppsala University.
This film and exhibition show the religious and cultural diversity which exists in the ancient civilisations of Iraq, now so often effaced by the mainstream media’s images of conflict and war. Scratch a little deeper, and there is beauty, art, expression and incredible diversity to be excavated and honoured.
Yardena: short film
All photographs taken by Mouayad Sary, with captions also provided by the photographer.
