      Our film Baghdad High will premiere on 7 November at the Sheffield
      International Documentary Festival. Under the guidance of two local Iraqi
      producers and a London based team, the film was shot by four Iraqi high
      school boys who documented their entire senior year in Baghdad.



      I am hoping to bring the kids and their headmaster over from Iraq for the
      screening so they can do the Q&A instead of me, but we are completely broke.
      Does anyone have any knowledge of charities or foundations who might be
      willing to contribute towards their travel expenses?



      The kids have really made an extraordinary film � the BBC has decided to run
      it at 90 minutes instead of the originally commissioned one hour. They have
      put so much money in already though that I dare not ask them for another
      6000 pounds (which is what we need).



      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.



      Warm regards to all,



      Ivan
