Director: Per Fly

A young program coordinator at the United Nations stumbles upon a conspiracy involving Iraq's oil reserves.

The story is set in the early 2000s in New York and Bagdad and was shot in 5 cities on 3 continents in the winter and spring of 2016 - Toronto and New York City in North America, Casablanca and Marrakech in North Africa and Copenhagen in Northern Europe. We had 3 separate art departments on three continents working simultaneously to bring together our vision of a world of diplomacy and privilege, conflict and suffering - on a very modest budget. Precision designing and meticulous shot-by-shot planning became even more important than usual to achieve the scale and atmosphere that the story required.
