Global Lens
QARANTINA (Oday Rasheed, 2010, Iraq, 90 min.)
A broken family, headed by the patriarch, Salih, lives within the gated courtyard of a dilapidated house in Baghdad. Salih’s pregnant daughter has fallen mute and only finds solace with Salih’s young second wife, Kerima, and preteen son, Muhanad. To keep the family afloat, Muhanad must work in the street shining shoes; more ominously, they are forced to take in a sullen and imperious boarder. In Arabic with English subtitles.
