Memories on Stone

"Movie director Hussein would like to shoot a film in his homeland of Iraqi Kurdistan about the Anfal military operation of the 1980s that led to the murder of more than 182,000 Kurds.

The Five Obstructions

Loading...
"Lars von Trier now enters the world of documentary filmmaking alongside his idol, Danish filmmaker Jørgen Leth. In 1967, Leth made a 12-minute short film called 'The Perfect Human'.
