‘I am Sami’ – On location in Kurdistan

‘I am Sami’ is a UK & Kurdish co-production, shot on location in Kurdistan – Northern Iraq. The film is Directed by Kae Bahar and Produced by Jackie Sheppard and Mark Blaney of Footprint Films.

Filming out in Kurdistan was an incredible experience and such an amazing location to shoot. The film included some classic military set pieces, a Humvee rolling into a packed market place and a night incursion sequence with fully equipped American soldiers. We shot on the Red Epic with a set of Red Pro Primes.
