ABOUT THE FILM:

Through traditional interviews and private confessional video diaries, Salaam Dunk follows the ethnically diverse American University of Iraq - Sulaimani women's basketball team as they discover what it means to be athletes. From the joy of their first win to the pain of losing the coach who started their team, the film gives a glimpse into an Iraq we don't see on the news.

Location: MCC (SMSU 228)
