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.

János lives with his two little children left from his previous marriage, on a farm in Székelyföld, Transylvania. He’s turned 50, his wife is dead, he’s looking for a second wife. The 21 year old Ildikó, once a worker, becomes his partner. The young woman arrived to work on the farm already pregnant. But she is not the only one trying to turn Janos’s head. Self nominated „wife and mother-wanna-bees” walk in and out of the farm.
