Of Fathers and Sons [عن الآباء والأبناء]

عن الآباء والأبناء

Directed By: Talal Derki

February 4, 2017 / Arabic / 99 min

Under false pretenses, documentary filmmaker Derki gains the trust of the Osamas, a radical Islamist family living on the frontline of the Syrian Civil War. With intimate access to the family’s daily life, Derki gives a face to Jihadi radicalism through a chilling depiction of a father preparing his young sons for a life of violence.
