pity, a film poem


pity, a film poem is an ode to image-making

The medium of film has always been present in the oeuvre of Iraqi Bodies. Never on stage, but as an art form existing alongside the live performances. Alternative universes of the multitude of scenes that are generated in any creative act.


pity, a film poem has been created by Iraqi Bodies’ artistic directors Anmar Taha and Josephine Gray, with the invaluable work of our cast.

The screening time of the film is 23 min and the online release of the film was on October 22, 2021.

In 2022 the film will be screened at various festivals in Europe and beyond. For access to the full-length film please contact us at info[a]

With support from Gothenburg Arts and Cultural Affairs Committee and Region Västragötaland.
