An interesting question to explore since these youth are Iraq’s next generation, their work-life balance now impacts on the kind of society Iraq will have in the future.

Another point the film could have made is the widespread desire to study abroad, in the same way that many Iraqi civil servants are desperate to be posted to some foreign embassy abroad so they can just leave the country for a few months. Of course only a few students get this opportunity through the Iraqi Student Project or sponsorship from the Ministry of Higher Education and Research.

Thanks again for the interesting films!
