“Shoot the War” - Takes on war by Iraqis

Conceived and supervised by Katia Jarjoura

In a period when Iraq is waging a deadly war against Islamic State and is once again in danger of descending into sectarian conflict, a new generation of film directors is starting to emerge.
After bearing the brunt of the American invasion and its disastrous aftermath – violence between religious groups, car bombs, kidnappings and the emergence of fanaticism – these young film-makers use the camera to communicate the volatile nature of everyday life in Iraq.

Katia Jarjoura, a Lebanese-Canadian film director who knows Iraq well, has set up an intensive short films workshop for young Iraqi film-makers in order to encourage and support the re-appearance of film-making in this region torn apart by conflict.

By Moises Saman / Magnum Photos

With the partnership of the Warm Foundation , the exhibition was shown in Sarajevo last june for the second edition of the Warm Festival.

DISCORDIA documents photographer Moises Saman’s personal journey as a witness to the Arab Spring. This body of work takes the viewer on a four-year voyage through Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria as these states drift from revolutionary throes to violent fallouts. This project chronicles the indelible transformation of the region in this momentous period in Arab history.

Moises Saman is an American/Spanish documentary photographer and a member of Magnum Photos. His work has focused on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and more recently the turmoil of the Arab Spring. Moises was one of the first photographers to reach northern Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks in 2001, and one of the few journalists inside Baghdad during the initial “Shock and Awe” bombing campaign in 2003 against the regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq. His body of work from Iraq and Afghanistan has received numerous international awards. In 2011, Moises relocated to Cairo, Egypt, where he was based for three years while covering the Arab Spring for The New York Times and The New Yorker. His ongoing book project 'Discordia' documents the tumultuous transitions that have taken place in the region. The work featured in 'Discordia' has received numerous awards, including the Eugene Smith Memorial Fund (2014), the Henri Nannen Preis (2014), the World Press Photo (2014), and Pictures of the Year International (2012, 2014). In 2015 Moises received a Guggenheim Fellowship to continue his work in the region.

From Mossoul to Rakka

percussions and battles surrounding the self-proclaimed Caliphate of the Islamic State.

In June 2014 the jihadist movement captured the Iraqi city of Mosul. Having taken advantage of the chaos reigning in Syria to seize control of the land, resources and population of the eastern part of the country, it continued to extend its zone of influence southwards, until in May of this year it entered the city of Ramadi, about 100km from Baghdad.

As a result of their savage repression of a Sunni opposition which they had already succeeded in radicalising, and in the absence of any attempt to stop them on the part of the international community, the Syrian and Iraqi governments managed to create ideal conditions for the expansion of Islamic State.

The photographs exhibited here show the victims, the displaced, and the settings for the horrific repression carried out by Islamic State jihadists, as well as the various groups fighting against them – Kurdish fighters from Iraq and Turkey, Shiite militiamen and soldiers of the Iraqi Army.
