The List

This informative documentary calls attention to the tens of thousands of Iraqis currently targeted by extremists in their own land for having assisted reconstruction efforts by the United States Agency for International Development. Their predicament is not only tragic but also infuriating, because the U.S. government has denied most of them refugee status. Director Beth Murphy (Beyond Belief) highlights the privately funded efforts of Kirk Johnson, a former USAID employee, to help these people escape political persecution. His story is uplifting but, given the huge number of Iraqis still in the crosshairs, hardly cause for optimism. In English and some subtitled Arabic.
