Family Holiday

The first shot is a classic: the view through a car window to a petrol station in a desert. In 17 scenes Kurdwin Ayub captures impressions of her holiday with relatives in Iraq. The father, who sings in front of the camera or enthusiastically gives account of the country´s development; the sisters, who spend their time on their exercise bike; the close-up of a cockroach. These home video episodes give an insight into the filmmaker´s family with an impressive sense of dramaturgy, while at the same time depicting her battle against the usual tedium of holidays.

This is a family holiday. I film my family while we are visiting my relatives in Iraq. I try to capture my family, the culture and most important of all, how we deal with the boredom there in 17 very short scenes. (Kurdwin Ayub)
