Broken Record| 1hr : 15mins
Director: Parine Jaddo | Producer: Parine Jaddo & Rania Malas
Focus Years: 2013 | Country: Lebanon
Broken Record is a poetic journey through Iraq in search of an Iraqi/Turkmen song, which the filmmaker Parine Jaddoâ€™s mother used to sing, and recorded with her brothers in 1960. Though she knows the melody, she no longer remembers the lyrics and her curiosity takes her around the country in search of it, giving rare insight to Iraqâ€™s rich musical culture and heritage, much of which has been burnt and lost.
