BERLIN — Oday Rasheed’s Iraqi-German coproduction “Underexposure,” the first feature made on location in Baghdad after the fall of Saddam Hussein, will premiere at the upcoming Munich Film Fest, which runs June 25-July 2.

Pic, coproduced by X Filme’s Tom Tykwer and Maria Koepf, traces the efforts of an Iraqi filmmaker to document the lives of his friends and neighbors in the tumultuous days following the U.S. invasion of the country and the destruction of Baghdad.

According to X Filme, Rasheed shot the film under life-threatening circumstances in the Iraqi capital using film purchased on the black market that had been plundered from the Iraqi culture ministry. The title refers not only to the outdated film stock but also to the generations of Iraqis that have been isolated from the world for decades.
