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.

Sorry, this film is no longer available.
A drunken lover. An anti-romantic friend. The soliloquy of a cat. Fragment gleaned from time to pass away is keeps obtaining the place on the film, and asking the meaning until the future. The camera works everyday to collect fragments of usual daily life. This film was made with usual days.
"Memory of spider and moth" was an official selection at Yamagata International Film Festival in 2009.
