Film description
In 1990, before the First Gulf War, Mounir, an impressionable and sheltered Saddam Hussein body-double, loses his job and moves to Los Angeles in search of a new start. But once the real Saddam invades Kuwait and makes international headlines, Mounir learns the truth about the Iraqi dictator and vows to shed his Saddam persona forever. Unfortunately, he doesn't know how to be anyone else.

Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Dawen will be performing live during the DisOrient Asian American Film Festival of Oregon Opening Night Reception on Friday, April 23rd 2010 following the Opening Night Screening of Patrick Epino's "Mr. Sadman".

With what Grammy Award winning artist Macy Gray calls, "a beautiful voice," and what MTV Iggy calls, "an eclectically soulful style," soul/r&b singer Dawen explores the gamut of American life.  Fusing soul/r&b with funk and jazz, Dawen offers up a lyrical style that appeals to both the emotions and intellect.

In his debut album American Me, Dawen covers everything from identity and social issues, to love, loss and redemption. American Me is available now on iTunes and Amazon. The music video for his single "Wake Up" is on YouTube.
