Plot: In the spring of 2003, a pride of lions escaped from the Baghdad Zoo during an American bombing raid. Lost and confused, hungry but finally free, the four lions roamed the decimated streets of Baghdad in a desperate struggle for their lives. In documenting the plight of the lions, PRIDE OF BAGHDAD raises questions about the true meaning of liberation — can it be given, or is it earned only through self-determination and sacrifice? And in the end, is it truly better to die free than to live life in captivity? Taken from Vertigo webpage

Pride is a story full of metaphors and questions that catch on deep. A beautiful art and a meaningful story makes of Pride of Baghdad, an impressive find! When the writer makes questions about freedom and war, although he has got a strong opinions about them, he doesn´t try to persuade you, just let you think about them. I really appreciate it because I don´t like movies, books or comics where the reader or watcher only have a way. I really enjoyed reading it.
