Recommend this film

It is six months after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans. Its inhabitants – mostly poor Afro-Americans – have lost their family, homes, and work. And now, at St. Augustine Church the axe has just fallen. The archdiocese has announced it will close the church parish and send old Father Ledoux away. Here at St. Augustine Church for the first time slaves and whites sat side by side, singing to God. Many people say this is where jazz was born. Why has this new catastrophe happened? Do the people who have lost so much, now risk losing their faith as well?

Iraqi film Homeland winning the Doc Alliance Selection Award 2015

Iraqi film Homeland winning the Doc Alliance Selection Award 2015

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.
