Who is this dwarf called Son Of God? Mystic midget healer. Is he trickster or shaman? Freak or messiah? A film crew tracks his bizarre pilgrimage as magic and religion, faith and doubt, real and unreal blur and melt.

The wild boys at school, Philippine Khavn de la Cruz and Danish Michael Noer are behind this febrile dream of a film about a dwarf who is idolised as God’s son by his deeply religious followers in the Philippines. Their expedition starts in Manila’s densely populated streets and continues deep into the jungle, where it culminates in a spiritual (re)birth. For the many million faithful in the Philippines, the divine has a real existence, and when God’s small son heals a cancer-suffering man with his guts hanging out of a hole in the stomach, one has to acknowledge that it’s only our welfare society that has waved goodbye to the age of miracles.

‘Son of God’ is a part of the talent and development project DOX:LAB.

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.
