In Saddam's Shadow - Baghdad 10 years After the Invasion

Please view the video documentary of modern day Iraq. There are four parts.

The guide is Waleed Nesyif, the former lead singer of the Iraqi heavy metal band Acrassicauda. He's returning home for the first time in eight years, and it's sure to be a tearful reunion with his family.

In part one, VICE founder Suroosh Alvi hangs with a Baghdadi biker gang who fondly remember the days of Saddam's rule, and we get a tour of a city that used to be covered nonstop in the American media, but now seems to be somewhat forgotten.
