WAR WITH IRAQ | IN BRIEF / AND FINALLY ...

DVD Makes Monkey's Uncle of Hussein

March 27, 2003|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A satirical documentary that portrays Iraqi President Saddam Hussein as a personal hygiene fanatic who likes to fish with grenades is being released on DVD in the United States.

Distributor Xenon Pictures says the timing of the April 2 release of "Uncle Saddam," made by French freelance journalist Joel Soler in 2000, is a coincidence.

The DVD package includes a "100 percent anti-Saddam" sticker and "dictators of the world" trading cards. "One of the best ways to confront evil is to laugh at it," Xenon Vice President Stephen Housden said.
