Two years in the life of an Iraqi family, before and after the American invasion. This powerful collective novel gives life to a saga that flows as slowly as the river that crosses Baghdad. The tragedy and the dignity of the Iraqi people come to life on the screen in the most intense moments. A reference work for the understanding of the Middle East in the past and the present.


Screened as a world premiere at Visions du Réel 2015, HOMELAND (IRAQ YEAR ZERO) won the Sesterce d'or La Poste Suisse, best feature film of the International Competition, as well as the Special mention of the Interreligious Jury. It was also awarded the Doc Alliance Selection Award 2015.
