Iraqi lives dream by helping out in American film
One small step for U.S. – Iraqi relations, one giant step for a young filmmaker. On the Prague set of ”Everything Is Illuminated,” 25-year-old Iraqi Muthana Mudher is getting a crash course in American-style moviemaking. As an intern on the project, Mudher, an aspiring filmmaker from Baghdad, has painted sets, assisted the director of photography, shot video for the film’s press kit, and even worked as an extra. All this because actor Liev Schreiber saw him telling MTV’s ”True Life” how nearly impossible it is to learn his profession in a country ravaged by war.
