Sorry, this film is no longer available.

This film is about the Largest Hadron Collider in the world (LHC) which is located near the French - Swiss border. By means of the accelerator, the scientists want to simulate the situation shortly after the Big Bang. As a result, they hope to acquire basic information about the structure of mass and reveal the last secrets of the universe. Our observational documentary deals with several serious questions, such as the introduction of the CERN institution, explanation of the experiments and their expected results as well as the introduction of the technological complexity of the project. Last but not least, the possible risks of the human hybris are discussed.

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.
