Usama Alshaibi’s personal Iraq doc, “Nice Bombs,” lands March premiere airing on Sundance Channel

USAMA ALSHAIBI’S “Nice Bombs” will have its broadcast premiere this March on the Sundance Channel. Producer Ben Berkowitz negotiated the deal with Sundance and also with Seventh Art Releasing for the documentary’s summer ’07 theatrical run.

“Nice Bombs” chronicles the journey of Alshaibi, his wife and father after a 20-year absence during the early days of the U.S. occupation and Alshaibi’s conflicted feelings about the U.S. overthrow of Saddam Hussein.

“Nice Bombs” premiered in 2006 at the Chicago Underground Film Festival, where it won best documentary, and screened in 2007 at the New York Underground Film Festival. See
