Based on James Langley's award-winning documentary, Iraq in Fragments provides a fascinating glimpse of modern-day Iraq the mass media never shows us. It provides a portrait of the war-torn country as seen through the eyes of the people who live there: a young Sunni orphan who works in a Baghdad garage; Shia fundamentalists as they rally for elections; and a family of Kurdish farmers, who have at last found some degree of freedom. Can Iraq remain intact or will it fracture into fragments?
