Director: Chris Hale
Placement: Best Editing (Chris Hale) + Award of Excellence
Competition: September 30, 2017
Synopsis: Shot in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, Dreams & Nightmares looks at the story behind a vote on independence, and uncovers the heartbreaking reasons the Kurds want a country of their own.
Terrifying and thought provoking, Dreams & Nightmares reveals the horror the Kurds endured during decades of murderous subjugation.
Featuring emotional interviews and distressing footage, Dreams & Nightmares is not for the faint of heart, but this compelling and sometimes very disturbing film is also one of hope and happiness.
