My Name is Mohammed

Sinan Najm Abdullah / United Kingdom, Iraq, Jordan / 2009 / 8 min


The young Iraqi refugee Mohammed shines shoes outside his refugee camp, raising money for his sick mother’s medicine while watching over his younger sister. Forced to mature rapidly, this 9-year-old can only cherish the nostalgia of his lost childhood, aware he can never return to the innocence he once knew. Chris Anthony Diaz
