Kurdish childhood friends Hussein (37) and Alan (40) direct and produce a film about the genocide of Kurdish people in Iraq, during the Anfal campaign in 1988. They learn that to achieve veracity by the means of cinema and to face their own identity, it’s worth putting everything on the line – even their own life. Our opening gala film is a joint production of Iran, Iraqi Kurdistan, and Germany and have been selected to represent Iraq as the official submission for the 88th Academy.
