Editorial Reviews

In the early 1990 s, Saddam Hussein destroyed the Mesopotamian Marshes when its inhabitants rebelled against him. Once the richest wildlife habitat in the Middle East, this beautiful Garden of Eden was reduced to mile after mile of scorched earth, and was thought to have been destroyed forever. But one man is making an extraordinary effort to restore both animals and people to the scene of one of the greatest ecocides of the Twentieth Century. Can his dream be realized? Two intrepid filmmakers determined to tell his story take their cameras to one of the most politically troubled and dangerous places on earth to find out.

I expected more footage of marsh wildlife. The episode focused more 1) the bigger picture marsh restoration effort by Iraqi-Californian engineer Azzam Alwash, and 2) the behind-the-scenes difficulties in filming a documentary in a conflict zone. The birds themselves (plus brief references to fish and amphibians) came in third. The climax of the filmmakers' journey was discovering a massive colony of marbled teal, a rare South Eurasian duck; however, no close-up of the fowl was provided--only a distant overview shot of a surging flock.

The episode itself ended on a mixed note, happily noting that the marshes have been restored to their largest levels since the 1990s, but also claiming that the failure of the Iraqi parliament to form a government after the March 2010 elections was a signal of worse things to come. As it turned out, Malaki was able form a government in December of 2010 after production concluded.

Our best investment this year, the film engaged us in a conservation project that is international.
To see the house of Prophet Abraham(peace be upon lhim) this was breath taking.
