It might be worth noting that (at the SIDF World Premiere of The Liberace of Baghdad) along with Sean Mcallister and Samir Peter, Sean Langan and Salam Pax will also be in attendance, and give a talk before or after the film. Sean Langan is another freelance film-maker who has made films of Iraq and Afghanistan before and after the current troubles, shown on BBC and similar. Salam Pax is the infamous Baghdad Blogger, fresh from a visit to the States I think. According to the blurb I read, he now works for the Guardian and contributes to Newsnight [BBC evening hourly news show] alot. It sounds like an interesting evening.
