WAR IS OVER

Resilience of the Human Spirit

Iraqi Kurdistan. What happens to war zones after the lights go out? Where do their children go? Half of them are under the age of 18. One year after the harsh conflict against ISIS, the scars of war remain. Yet, life endures, gradually returning to a semblance of normality. The reality serves as a painful reminder and a collective act of liberation. WAR IS OVER stands as a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.

THE FILMMAKER

Stefano Obino worked for various international networks. In 2018 Stefano decided to focus on projects that he felt were his, moving towards more artistic storytelling. He first made “Bare-Handed,” a short documentary published by The Guardian, and then War is Over, which premiered at the Roma International Film Festival. Reviewed as "a cinematic poem about the universal resilience of the human spirit", "War is over" was awarded the Nastri d'Argento - Italian Critics' National Award.
