International Perspective



Italy, France, Germany 2020 Documentary cor 100 min.

Shot over three years in the Middle East, on the borders between Iraq, Kurdistan, Syria and Lebanon, this documentary recounts the everyday life that lies behind the continuing tragedy of civil wars, ferocious dictatorships, foreign invasions and interference, up to the murderous apocalypse of ISIS. The movie tells different stories to which the narration confers a unity that goes beyond geographical divisions. All around and in people’s consciousness, signs of violence and destruction, but in the foreground is the humanity that reawakens every day.

Winner of Arca CinemaGiovani, Sorriso Diverso Venezia and Unicef prizes at Venice Film Festival.
