I went to see the first screening of this documentary on the 10th of April in Kuala Lumpur. After viewing the film, I feel that I can understand the animosity some Malaysian people have towards Ahkeem. The film starts of with Ahkeem's family in the village of Pakpaw. When Ahkeem was a child he was struck by lightning and lost his hearing. When he was old enough to take care of himself, he took to selling other people's wool and leather goods for his own trade. When he reached a high age, he was able to travel from country to country, which is how he became famous. When he got to know about the great flood in Thailand, he knew that his time was coming to an end, so he started building a huge fortress on the river bank. He waited for the rains to come, but nothing came. Finally, the rains did come. Ahkeem had built a wall to protect himself, but when the water receded, he realized that his wall was no match for the river. He sent his army to attack the wall, but the army was defeated and was massacred. Then, he realized that he had been misled by his mother and started believing that he could overcome the flood. He knew that if he did not build the fortress, it would flood once again. Then, he started building a small raft and began to run away from the river. Finally, the river swept him away. This is a story of a man who was willing to go to any length to protect his family and himself, against all odds. But, he was mistaken. He believed he could save his family and himself from the flood. His story is a testament of how people's egos can get in the way of their lives.

This is a beautifully shot documentary about a man who runs for the presidency of his native Egypt, wearing a tattered old suit and a flimsy hat. It is about an era and people who have endured hardship and injustice, but it is also a wonderful glimpse into the world of the modern day. The film is done with great style and it is very well done. The first three or four minutes seem a little slow, but it actually builds to a very moving sequence near the end. You really feel for all the characters and the conflicts and hardships they have to go through, but the focus is mostly on the man, who is, in my opinion, the greatest hope for democracy in the Middle East. Many of the people in the world have never met or heard of Ahmet Ertugrul, but he is our hope. Ahmet is a man who was unjustly imprisoned for nearly twenty years. When he was released, he was a President. He is a proud man who feels that he was a victim of his country's government. He is a man who is defiant, and he is a man who is driven to push for change. The film doesn't show his personal life, but you can see that his ambition is a good thing. It's a great story, and the documentary crew is an amazing team. They have wonderful personalities and the documentary looks amazing. The cinematography is great, and it helps with the documentary. It really makes you feel like you are there, and the shots are very important. The cast is fantastic, and the story is very interesting. The director is really good at getting the best out of the people in the story. This is a great documentary that is very important. It shows the world the truth about an era that should be forgotten.

I was curious about this film, especially after reading all the hype it's been getting. I also read that the filmmaker was originally motivated by the "Indian Racist Riots" in New York City in 1969. As a native New Yorker, this event was something that I felt strongly about. As a non-native New Yorker, I felt even more strongly about the impact that these events had on the people of my hometown. To me, the documentary seemed to make a statement, as it was such a high profile event, but I was disappointed that the message seemed to be reduced to the smallest detail. As an American, I would have felt more deeply about the racism that existed in that period, and the injustices of the system. Instead, the film seemed to be only concerned with the "immigrants' plight." As an African American woman, I was also very impressed with the way the documentary was filmed, the way they filmed the reactions of each individual family, and the way they made me feel for their struggle. As a person who has lived in the U.S. for almost 50 years, I felt much more comfortable and secure as an American than I did as a South African. I feel that the documentary could have been better if it didn't focus on the racism, and instead focused on the "culture of the outsider." I think that the filmmaker could have also shown the racial attitudes of the time in a way that was more focused on the internal struggle of the people, and less on the external persecution of the entire group. I hope that this film does more good than harm, because it has the potential to change the way we view the world. I am very impressed with the way that it was made and I can't wait to see the next film from this filmmaker.
