Icarus Films releasing OPERATION FILMMAKER
Icarus films has acquired the North American distribution rights for Nina Davenport's new film OPERATION FILMMAKER. OPERATION FILMMAKER is the story of how well- intentioned Americans – including the actor/director Liev Schreiber, the producer Peter Saraf, and eventually also Nina herself – intervene in the life of a young Iraqi film student. And how, not surprisingly, nothing goes as planned.

After the film's premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, Eric Kohn of indieWIRE wrote that "Davenport's direction is intricate and her editing is sublime," while Gerald Perry of The Boston Phoenix wrote "Not since Luis Buñuel have we had such a wonderful joke on do-gooder liberalism."

In addition to winning the Grand Jury Prize at the AFI Fest, OPERATION FILMMAKER has also been honored with a Special Jury Prize at the 2007 Chicago International Film Festival, and the Dutch Film Critics' Award at the Rotterdam Film Festival.
