In 7 Veils, the director unveils the soul of Afghanistan and the mentality of its citizens constantly tormented by war conflicts. The situation in the Middle East is also shown in I Used to Sleep on the Rooftop. Nuhad is 53 years old and she has lived in Syria all her life. As the war goes on, she decides to look up her son’s friend, director Angie. She lives at her place, revealing the nuances of the war traumas she is carrying within herself in an intimate portrait. The poetic documentary Saints' Game demythicizes and relativizes the iconic images of saints in Christian mythology.
The collection of FIDMarseille winning films is available from July 9 to 22, 2018.
