This film had a strong audience in the Arab world. I feel it had a major impact, because it went out beyond Israeli borders and into the Arab world. It sparked a rare debate, in Iraq, and in the Jewish and non-Jewish Iraqi diaspora. This debate is the greatest reward for me, as I can feel the power of the documentary to touch people emotionally and intellectually. The success of any movie is founded on its ability to move people on from square one to square two.
