The Baghdad Blog, the daily dispatches penned by the Iraqi architect known as Salam Pax, is to be turned into a film.FilmFour will co-produce the big-screen version of the acclaimed blog written by Pax, which chronicled life during and after the allied invasion.Salam Pax is the pseudonym of the 20-something from Iraq whose online diary Where is Raed? received huge media attention and a loyal, worldwide readership after it appeared on the web in 2003.
If you don’t know about the Baghdad Blog, aka Where is Raed ? you should check it out. I remember reading it during its run, and enjoying some of it, but not being that interested in the war, and busy with things, I didn’t follow it as much as others did. When it came out as a book, I was astounded to see how well it read as text. I’ll watch the movie, as it should be hard to wreck.
