Hands of God is a documentary about the Iraqi Olympic Boxing Team. Seeing as how a documentary showed me that Iran had an Olympic Martial Arts Team, there’s no end to what these docs can do. Executive produced by Alfonso Cuaron, the film is a quick 78 minutes highlighting the team’s struggles during wartime and against ISIS.
Boasting no special features, Film Movement releases this underseen documentary to DVD. It’s not meant to make a big splash, but raise attention. Watch and see how this true life underdogs rise above against a life of strife to bring some honor back to their homeland. Great stuff all around.
