"I just got through viewing The Price for Paradise and I
must tell you that I was personally moved and affected
in many ways. Your documentary tells some frank and
honest truths about the effects of our country's
invasion of that soverign nation. It is so powerful
for it is told through the mouths of the true victims,
the Iraqi citizens who were forced to flee their
beloved country. I am very proud to know a man who
would risk his own life to go to the middle east in
short because he cared to learn the truth."
- Raul Ramos, Actor; Marketing Director, Austin, Texas
"I had the privilege to get an advanced screening of 'The Price for Paradise'. The film
gave me a unique insight into the lives of real people from Iraq. By putting a face on the
unseen effects of the war Mr. Kramer shows an unbiased view that you won't see on the
6 o'clock news. It is beautifully shot and the images are stunning.
-Karl Bennett, President; Fade 2 Black Video, Lanham Maryland
"Kramer puts the mainstream media to shame and shows a side
of the U.S. Iraqi conflict that evokes compassion that isn't
conveyed on the nightly news."
- Brian Taylor, Cinematographer, EPA; Washington, DC
"The Price for Paradise gives you an unbiased sense of the affects
the War in Iraq has had on the average Iraqi in a way no other
related documentary has been quite been able to pull off.
It's an eye opener to say the least.
- Esteban Escobar, Producer, Great Expectations, Potomac, MD
"This is an outstanding film. I was very impressed with the
cinematography and the compassion. It took a lot of courage
to make this film and it has a powerful message about the
challenges of a war of terror - and the people left behind."
-Jeff Hoffman, Executive Director, Danya International, Silver Spring, MD
"I was absolutely overwhelmed by the depth of this film! I knew
about the training of Iraqis as a police force, but I never thought
that there were athletes and other citizens who would fear for their
safety. This film is a real eye-opener!" - Kari Keen, Graphic Designer
