World Premiere
Ali Essafi | | 20 mins

In the seventies, Moroccan schoolboys and students were constantly dreaming of freedom and democracy. Removals, arbitrary detentions and disappearances, marked the period out as the 'years of lead'. Many militants had to lead dangerous and clandestine lives. Now, more than 30 years later we see the long incubation of the present unrest. This is the story of Aziz, 23 years old at the time, who lived for two years in loneliness and under a false identity before capture.

Incident in New Baghdad

European Premiere Watch trailer
James Spione | , | 23 mins

In this raw, provocative documentary from independent filmmaker James Spione, one of the most notorious incidents of the Iraq War - the July 2007 slayings of two Reuters journalists and a number of other civilians by U.S. attack helicopters - is recounted in the powerful testimony of an American infantryman whose life was profoundly changed by his experiences on the scene.

U.S. Army Specialist Ethan McCord bore witness to the devastating carnage, found and rescued two children caught in the crossfire, and soon turned against the war that he had enthusiastically joined only months before. Denied psychological treatment in Iraq for his PTSD, McCord returned home, struggling for years with anger, confusion, and guilt over the war. When WikiLeaks released the stunning cockpit video of the incident in April 2010, McCord was finally spurred into action, and began traveling the country, speaking out for the rights of PTSD sufferers and against the American wars in the Middle East.
