Darcy loves nothing more than donning his homemade unicorn costume and fighting alongside his friends in epic live-action roleplaying battles. But when his family grows impatient with his “alternative lifestyle,” they pressure him into joining a bizarre treatment camp that promises to give Darcy everything he needs to finally become a normal guy.

This documentary piece by artist Hiwa K is one of the most compelling and tense works I’ve seen at the 2014 Images Festival. During protests in the Iraqi city of Sulaimany, Hiwa K plays the harmonica theme from Once Upon a Time in the West, accompanied by a guitar, over megaphones as a rallying song for the protesters. He and his team march through the crowds toward the armed militia as they use tear gas and fire into the protesters. It is a truly a remarkable document about a little heard about uprising (that was swiftly put down) in April of 2011.
