Program note

Baghdad, 2006. In the city occupied by the U.S. military, Haifa Street has become a living hell, devastated by al-Qaeda militants and their snipers. After 20 years of living in the United States, Ahmed returns to his home city with the U.S. military. When he faces the horrendous reality of the Abu Ghraib prison, he records it on video. One day, Ahmed goes to Haifa Street to ask for Suad’s hand in marriage and take her and her daughter Nadia to the United States. But before he gets to the house, he is shot dead by Salman, a sniper who is in love with Nadia. Salman suffers from anxiety, sees a ghostlike child wandering the streets, and despises al-Qaeda to the point of ignoring their orders. Amidst everything that happens, Haifa Street is still at war.

Haifa Street presents the titular street where nothing but violence, hatred, resentment, and despair remain through Salman, who is both the perpetrator and the victim of violence. The brutal violence in this film and its appalling results are atrocious; they cannot be resolved even in fantasy, let alone reality. (PARK Sun Young)
