The Prince of Nothingwood
It’s fascinating to watch the determination with which Salim Shaheen and his actors stubbornly overcome one obstacle after another: the strict father of one of the actresses doesn’t let his eyes off his daughter during filming, some of the actors have absolutely no talent, the ever-present bystanders, and even exploding rocket fire. The eyewitness accounts of the actors, who finished shooting a scene only after removing the dead, are themselves wrapped in bandages, provide authentic evidence about the resilience of people who have never known peace.

The Distant Barking of Dogs
This subtle but also cautionary film shot in the village of Hnutove in eastern Ukraine follows young Oleg, who lives with his grandmother in the middle of a war zone. One of the most moving films of this year’s festival, which truly spoke to me with its honesty and directness.
