1988, the conflict between Iraq and Iran is reaching its final stage. The ten-year-old Dileer and his sister Zienee want to watch cartoons on television, but that is easier said than done when bully Malo comes along...


Director Sahim Omar Kalifa was born in 1980 in Kurdish Iraq. He came to Belgium in 2001, where he worked as an interpreter and meanwhile studied Audiovisual Arts at the University of Art and Design Sint-Lukas in Brussels. With the successful short film NAN, his graduation project, he won a “Wildcard” from the Flemish Audiovisual Fund (VAF) and was now capable of making his first professional short LAND OF THE HEROES.
