The First Move - SXSW 2011 Accepted Film
Posted by TwitC
THE FIRST MOVIE is a tribute to the imaginative resilience of children. When filmmaker Mark Cousins travels to a small Kurdish Village devastated by Saddam Hussein's regime, they discover children who have known nothing but war and have never experienced the magic of cinema. The real magic happens, however, when the children receive Flip camcorders and create their own movies filled with a child's boundless imagination. The resulting films are the true gift of THE FIRST MOVIE; they are tickets to see a different Iraq through a child's transformative eyes, even amidst the bloodshed of war.
