'Turtles Can Fly' by Bahman Ghobadi, 2005

"The film is set in a Kurdish refugee camp on the Iraqi-Turkish border on the eve of the US
invasion of Iraq. Thirteen-year-old Kak (played by Soran Ebrahim) is known as "Satellite" for
his installation of dishes and antennae for local villages looking for news of Saddam Hussein.
He is the dynamic but also cowardly, bullying and manipulative leader of the children,
organizing the dangerous but necessary sweeping and clearing of the mine fields. He then
arranges trade-ins for the unexploded mines. The industrious Soran falls for an unlikely
orphan named Agrin (Avaz Latif), a sad-faced girl traveling with her disabled but smart brother
Henkov, who appears to have the gift of clairvoyance. The siblings are care-taking a
three-year-old, whose connection to the pair is discovered as harsh truths are revealed.

The question is, what happened to these children? There are so many, will the occupation
make their lives better or worse? How could it get worse? The movie begins with the refugee
camp recovering from an attack by Turkish soldiers, then the occupation of US forces they
hope will save them. What happened to them?"
