Sorry, this film is no longer available.

This rare and intimate portrait explores a young woman’s perspective about living with albinism - a condition which has often made her an outsider - but equally determined to lead a normal life. “I’ll never be able to drive a car, but that’s about it,” she says as she climbs the highest indoor climbing arena in Europe.

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.
