Commendation of the Interreligious Jury Nyon 2015

Homeland looks carefully and respectfully at the very challenging situation a family in Baghdad finds itself in shortly before and shortly after the 2nd Iraq War. The film penetrates the viewers’ consciousness and brings us close to the protagonists of Homeland. Visually we become part of their lives. The filmmaker took great risks in making the film and also saw himself confronted with a personal tragedy.
