"Children of Heaven"
"Daughter of Keltoum"
"Excuse My French"
From France. French with English subtitles. About the rescue of Jews/resistance activities at the Grand Mosque of Paris during World War II and the Holocaust.--
From Lebanon. Arabic with English subtitles. Possibly appropriate for high school (except for one really graphic reference shouted by a mother over a megaphone), definitely great for adults. Note: This film guide was made possible by a grant from the Arizona Humanities Council.
"Santa Claus in Baghdad"
In English. Created for middle school and high school students. You need to provide a quick background on sanctions in Iraq in order for young people to fully understand the story.
