 "White Light, Black Rain: The Destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki"
On August 6th and 9th, 1945, two atomic bombs vaporized 210,000 people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those who survived are called "hibakusha"--people exposed to the bomb--and there are an estimated 200,000 living today. Today, with the threat of nuclear weapons of mass destruction frighteningly real- the world's arsenal capable of repeating the destruction at Hiroshima 400,000 times over, Oscar® award-winning filmmaker Steven Okazaki revisits the bombings and shares the stories of the only people to have survived a nuclear attack.

Jung means war in Farsi language. The documentary details the humanitarian adventure of the building of the Emergency hospital in northern Afghanistan in 1999.

Jung won first prize at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam in 2000. In 2001 it won the Human Rights Watch Film Festival as Best Film and the Vancouver International Film Festival prize as Best Documentary.

 "The Circle"
"The Circle" (Persian: Dayereh) is the 2000 fiction-film by Iranian independent filmmaker Jafar Panahi that criticizes the treatment of women in Iran. The film does not have a central protagonist: instead, it is constructed around a sequence of short interconnecting stories that illustrate the everyday challenges that women face in Iran. Each story intersects, but none is complete, leaving the viewer to imagine both the background and the ending. The film won several awards, including the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 2000, but it is banned in Iran.

Paradise Now is a 2005 film directed by Hany Abu-Assad about two Palestinian men preparing for a suicide attack in Israel. It delves into the minds of the potential suicide bombers, their feelings, their thoughts. "The film is an artistic point of view of the political issue." Abu-Assad said. "The politicians want to see it as black and white, good and evil, and art wants to see it as a human thing." The film won a Golden Globe for best foreign language film and was nominated for an Academy Award in the same category.
