The Sundance Film Festival wound up today by awarding the top awards to the documentary "Why We Fight" and the drama “Forty Shades of Blue.”

War dominated the winners’ list this year with “The Liberace of Baghdad,” which follows one of Iraq’s most famous pianists as his world crumbles in the war torn city, being awarded a special prize and best world drama going to "The Hero," which is set in the aftermath of the Angolan war.

Rounding up the jury prizes was the Dutch film "Shape of the Moon” picking up best world documentary; with no narration the film tracks three generations of one family weather the challenges of living in modern-day Indonesia.
