  • Overview
    Aftermath tells six stories, based on real interviews, with people who fled Iraq as the fallout of the war became too much for them to bear. The format cleverly engages you with their tales; a translator named Shahid introduces the characters, guiding you through the narratives. Before long you realise that you, the audience, are being treated as the interviewer. The Iraqi refugees, often sceptically, look to Shahid to explain their accounts justly whilst he looks nervously to you as he grapples with translation, exposing the pitfalls of being an intermediary where the gulfs of language, culture, and understanding can be so large. This is a theme which is explored on many levels throughout Aftermath.
