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.

This documentary film pays tribute to Elo Havetta (1838-1975), a solitary director, an author of only two feature films (Celebration in the Botanical Garden, and Wild Lilies) that belong to the best Slovak cinema. At their time they brought playfulness and spontaneity, on which the authors of the documentary base their happening - a journey to the director s grave in the search for his legacy.
