INDEPENDENT LENS | OPERATION FILMMAKER | Film Clip 3

Duration: 03:34

www.pbs.org/independentlens/op... In this surprising allegory of America's involvement in Iraq, an Iraqi film student, Muthana Mohmed—whose school was destroyed by American bombs—lands a dream job working on a Hollywood movie in the West. On set, idealistic expectations and cultural misunderstandings collide launching Muthana on a journey more complicated than either he or his American benefactors ever anticipated.

In this clip, Muthana Mohmed gets a talking-to for going to a party instead of meeting a deadline for the staff of a Hollywood film.

OPERATION FILMMAKER premieres Tuesday, December 30 on Independent Lens, a weekly series airing on PBS. Hosted by Terrence Howard, the acclaimed series showcases powerful and innovative independent films. Presented by ITVS, Independent Lens is broadcast on PBS stations nationwide.
