Film Premiere at Doc/Fest
The reception for Amir’s film about the world’s largest protest – the anti-Iraq invasion protests of 2003 – took the UK’s leading documentary festival by storm!
To sell out audiences at Doc/Fest in Sheffield, the film received a standing ovation; much feedback on twitter and some brilliant reviews.

Many of the film’s team joined Amir for the screenings – executive producers Omid Djalili, Wael Kabbani, Pippa Harris, Taghi Amirani and ourselves from TPFF – along with Amir’s brother, sister and mother. It was a truly ‘We Are Many’ film family event. There are very encouraging discussions being held about the UK release for later this year and we’ll be sharing those plans as they develop. Meantime, enjoy some of the comments and images here…
