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.

Searching for an identity. The film records the transition from being a woman to being a man that the director made between the late 1990s and 2005. Simone Cangelosi started work on the project in 1998 as a sort of visual diary following his physical and psychological transformation step by step. Being so bound up with the main character's life, however, the documentary itself changed over the years and turned into something quite different from what had been planned at the outset.
