The Hyderabad Film Club is screening a US Film, Syriana, on 23rd April, at the Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet. The film is directed by the renowned Stephen Gaghan, and has George Clooney, Matt Damon, Jeffrey Wright, Chris Cooper, Mazhar Munir and Alexander Siddig playing the main characters.

A missile disappears in Iran, but the CIA has other problems: the heir to an Emirate gives an oil contract to China, cutting out a US company that promptly fires its immigrant workers and merges with a small firm that has landed a Kazakhstani oil contract. The Department of Justice suspects bribery, and the oil company's law firm finds a scapegoat.

The CIA also needs one when its plot to kill the Emir-apparent fails. Agent Bob Barnes, the fall guy, sorts out the double cross. An American economist parlays the death of his son into a contract to advise the sheik the CIA wants dead. The jobless Pakistanis join a fundamentalist group. All roads start and end in the oil fields.

Syriana is a thriller of corruption and power related to the oil industry that tells four parallel stories: the CIA agent Bob Barnes (George Clooney) with great experience in the Middle-East who falls into disgrace after an unsuccessful mission dealing missiles in Lebanese Republic; the investigation of the attorney Bennett Holiday (Jeffrey Wright) related to the merger of two American oil companies, Connex and Killen; the traumatic association of the energy analyst Bryan Woodman (Matt Damon) with the son of a powerful emir of an Emirate; and the social drama of the Pakistani immigrant worker Wasim Khan (Mazhar Munir) who is fired by the oil company.
