Marce, his wife Adriana, their two children Mario and Jacqueline, and her boyfriend, Carmelo, are the only members of the Aztlán Circus. They insist on keeping this small show running because they are convinced of the transcendence of their art. Although their way of life is doubly that of outsiders (because they live apart from society and on the outskirts of Mexico City), at the same time, they marginalize Carmelo because he´s not from a circus family and he doesn´t carry the circus in his blood. Carmelo asks Jacqueline to leave the circus, but she wants to stay because there she feels special and different from other people.

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.
