Homeland (Iraq Year Zero) by Abbas Fahdel has won the Doc Alliance Selection Award. The winning film is composed of two parts – the first was shot before the US army’s invasion of Iraq while the second part captures the post-war events – providing an essential report on the turning point in the country’s development. Instead of shorthand news features on the events in Iraq, it brings an impressive portrayal of life in the country. Director Fahdel received the award at the Locarno film festival.

Roma musicians are the heroes of this documentary film, directed by Robert Lakatos. Usin short, often contrastingly intermittent cuts, this film of folkloric imagination materialises the energy of a Roma musical gruop that wanders throught town and the neighbourhood of its housing settlement. The music is the impetus behind the movement in the film, and following its rythm the film presents the panorama of feelings and experiences of life on the periphery.
