Mohammed Al-Darraji (born 6 August 1978 in Baghdad, Iraq) is an Iraqi Dutch film director. Al-Daradji is a dual Dutch-Iraqi citizen. He studied theatre directing in Baghdad and fled to The Netherlands in 1995, where he specialised as a cameraman. Later he graduated with two MA's in cinematography and directing in Leeds at The Northern Film School. He created many several short films and commercials winner the Kodak student award for commercials. In 2005 he established Human Film a Leeds based production company with his producer Isabelle Stead. One of his first features was Ahlaam, which took him four months to film in 2004, in Baghdad while the war was going on and it was very difficult to film as electricity would often cut off from time to time. Near to the end of filming, he claims that he and three members of his crew were kidnapped but managed to escape from being killed by insurgents, who accused them of making a propaganda film supporting the U.S.-backed Iraqi government.
