Turtles can Fly (Click image to watch in Amazon)


The phrase “History is written by the victors’ was famously declared  by Winston Churchill–not necessarily in a positive light, but as a stark  political fact. How does Alizadeh’s Turtles Can Fly provide a counter-history? The characters in this film are narrated visually and through  dialogue that presents a grim view of those who exist at a distance from  the heroic role Saddam Hussein assigns himself. Talk about the ways  in which this movie, using tone, image, setting, and character portrayal,  question that role.
