Documentaries don’t get much more awkward than 2007’s Operation Filmmaker. Armed with the best intentions, actor Live Schreiber conceives an MTV special about Muthana Mohmed, a young Iraqi who had big, improbable dreams of becoming a filmmaker. Mohmed is given a chance to come to America and be an assistant on a film production—but he’s less than excited about the grunt work he’s assigned, and in general difficult to work with. Directed by Nina Davenport, Operation Filmmaker is a would-be feel-good story gone horribly, horribly wrong. It screens tonight at the UWM Union Theatre at 7 p.m.
