In his epic and engaging documentary of life in Baghdad before and after the 2003 US invasion, Iraqi filmmaker Abbas Fahdel acquaints us with a moving portrait of his own family and friends as they struggle in the advent and the uncertain aftermath of war. Displaying courage, grace and even humor after decades of deprivation through conflict, international sanctions, and totalitarian oppression, their optimism and determination is both inspiring and heartbreaking. Ultimately, Homeland : Iraq Year Zero is the story of a lost civilization--one of the oldest on the planet--destroyed by the wanton and misguided actions of a more powerful nation.
