Nowhere to Hide


“Nowhere to Hide” follows medic Nori Sharif through five years of dramatic change after the American retreat from Iraq in 2011, providing unique access into one of the world’s most dangerous and inaccessible areas – the “triangle of death” in central Iraq.

Initially filming stories of survivors and the hope of a better future, Nori begins to find himself trapped between ISIS and the different Iraqi Militias. Now trying to save his own family he turns the camera on himself in this “new war” that has become the norm, where the enemy is invisible and there is nowhere to hide.
