Salaam Dunk

Screenings

2012 Season
London, New York

With plenty of pop music and 'girl power', Salaam Dunk delivers a tale of hope and inspiration, courtesy of one winning group of Iraqi women basketball players at the American University in Sulaimani, Iraq. The women come from all over the country to attend this prestigious university, but many cannot tell family back home that they go to an 'American' college. The team itself is a 'mini Iraq'—comprised of Arabs, Kurds, Turkmen, and Christians.
