NEWLY FUNDED: ITVS is Pleased to Announce Funding for Jehan S. Harney’s The Lost Dream

Posted on February 28, 2012

ITVS recently approved funding for the documentary The Lost Dream by filmmakers Jehan S. Harney (Director/Producer) and Laura Poitras (Executive Producer).

The Lost Dream examines the lives of two Iraqis who supported the U.S. mission in their own country and came to America, only to find themselves strangers in a strange land. Nazar and Salam both helped the coalition forces in Operation Iraqi Freedom and were forced to flee their homes. As they begin new lives in the United States, they are left to wonder if their sacrifice was worth the costs. The Lost Dream reflects a rarely seen Iraqi refugee community in the U.S., a population still paying the price for a war that was supposed to liberate them. Join ITVS in congratulating the filmmakers and watch an interview with filmmaker Jehan Harney after the jump.
