كرنتينة".. صورة مليئة بالحب والعنف ف


The story of a professional killer in Baghdad. He lives in an abandoned building with a displaced family, watching emotionless as they struggle. He begins to murder independently, while his clients get increasingly frustrated with him. In the end, each character's future unfolds as a direct result of their flaws or undertakings.

A Oday Rasheed feature film, fiction, Iraq.

In 2009 Rasheed finished filming his second feature film, "Qarantina", which was scheduled to be shown in 2009 and 2010 at the Dubai International Film Festival and the Rotterdam Film Festival - however, due to complications in the post-production, neither of these showings occurred. It is now complete and scheduled for its world premiere at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival on 17 October 2010 and European premiere at the International Film Festival in Rotterdam. "Qarantina" was one of 37 projects in 2009 to be selected for financing from the Hubert Bals Fund in Holland. "Qarantina" examines the realities of post-war Iraq through the unlikely interactions of killer and a family that make their residence in an abandoned building. The assassin watches coldly as the family struggles with an abusive father and unmarried pregnant daughter. Then begins to kill targets that are not contracted, displeasing his clients. In the end, the fates of the characters are determined by their individual interactions and decisions.
