In partnership with International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) we bring you an online conversation about “The Fifth Story”, a film by Iraqi filmmaker Ahmed Abd. The film portrays how different generations still carry the burden of war with them. In his fragmentary style, Abd often takes a poetic approach, documenting the physical and mental devastation whilst at the same time cautiously opening a door to beauty and contemplation. The Fifth Story had its world premiere at IDFA 2020, and received the FIPRESCI Award at the IDFA Festival.

Do not miss the opportunity to watch an award-winning documentary and participate in a live discussion about the film moderated by Mouin Rabbani with the Director Ahmed Abd, Executive Producer Louai Haffar and IDFA Artistic Director Orwa Nyrabia! You will have the chance to ask questions and hear more about the filmmaking process! ?
