With a $10,000 budget, a million dollars worth of determination and a great sense of humour, three Yellowknife filmmakers set off on an incredible journey. Just weeks before the US invasion of Iraq, they escape the frozen landscape of their home and travel to Turkey, Israel, West Bank, Jordan, Kurdistan and finally Washington, D.C. in search of 'regular' people's opinions on the impending war. Armed with a microphone, director Matt Frame's self-effacing and sardonic wit wins the day with his parody of Michael Moore's filmmaking style. According to producer and videographer Paul Gordon, "The film is 80 per cent comedy." This may be so, but like all great Canadian humour there's thought-provoking content that raises the experience to another level. Baghdad or Bust won best documentary at the Whistler Film Festival in 2003. John Walker
