Sorry, this film is no longer available.

This enigmatic title might be beautiful, but it is above all congruent with what it is about. The wavering between boasting and God. Between the traffic of stolen cars and the direct company of angels: it is all a matter of speed, revelation, bedazzlement, headlights or miraculous vision. A matter of men bigger than life. But first of all, where are we? In the North of France, with Fred Dorkel, his family and friends, all of them from a community of “travelling people”, as they say. But don’t expect guitars, fake compassion, or even less so a mediocre naturalism vaguely spiced up with Gipsy folklore. Where are we? In pure fiction, science-fiction, western, you name it. In something that is deeply breathing and mildly hallucinating. Even if Jean-Charles Hue isn’t a beginner and knows his characters-actors very well for having filmed them and mixed with them for a long time, it is the first time he ever devised in minute detail such an autonomous, obvious machine. Each scene invents its own necessity and delirium, everybody’s there for the show; even a big white dog plays its part, bulky and quiet, like an immaculate icon. When there is no choice but to accept that everywhere scenarios are running out of steam and so are we, it is delightful to find back the revived innocence of cinema, thanks to people who couldn’t care less.

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.
