Of Fathers And Sons



Of Fathers And Sons


Thursday 25 July 8.30pm Channel 039

Following his Sundance award-winning documentary, Return To Homs, Talal Derki returned to his homeland where he gained the trust of a radical Islamist family, sharing their daily life for over 2 years. His camera focuses primarily on the two young sons, providing a rare insight into what it means to grow up with a father whose only dream is to establish an Islamic caliphate. Osama and his brother both love, admire and obey their father, but while Osama seems content to follow the path of a Jihad, Ayman wants to go back to school. Of Fathers And Sons is a work of unparalleled intimacy that captures the chilling moment when childhood and jihadism is born. Nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature at the Academy Awards 2019. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for World Cinema Documentary at Sundance Film Festival 2018.
