In the 1990s, the Mesopotamian Marshes were virtually destroyed by Saddam Hussein in an attempt to eradicate the Marsh Arabs who lived there. Once the richest wildlife habitat in the Middle East, this “Garden of Eden” was reduced to mile after mile of scorched earth. But Azzam Alwash is making an extraordinary effort to return life to the green paradise he remembers from his childhood. Follow filmmakers David Johnson and Stephen Foote as they chronicle Azzam’s efforts — and navigate the inherent dangers of working in a dangerous and politically volatile region. Buy the DVD. This film premiered November 7, 2010.
