...and the winners are...: Of Fathers and Sons (Kinder des Kalifats)
Mon Oct 21: 8.30pm

Talal Derki
Germany, Syria & Lebanon
1h 49m

After 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 two years. His camera focuses primarily on the children, providing an extremely rare insight into what it means to grow up with a father whose only dream is to establish an Islamic caliphate. Osama (13) and his brother Ayman (12) both love and admire their father and obey his words, but while Osama seems content to follow the path of Jihad, Ayman wants to go back to school.

Nominated for Best Documentary Film at the 2019 Academy Awards and Film Independent Spirit Awards, and winner of the Grand Jury Prize for World Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, Of Fathers and Sons is a work of unparalleled intimacy that captures the chilling moment when childhood dies and jihadism is born.

Clear, vivid, unshakable. The sheer level of personal danger-zone access secured by Derki is something to marvel and puzzle over. Sincerely eye-popping in its portrayal of inherited Islamist fervor.  Variety

Imagine a westernized Syrian filmmaker who identifies as a liberal Muslim going to Syria and embedding with radical Islamists by pretending to be one of them. Thats what Talal Derki did in order to shoot Of Fathers and Sons. And what he documented is unlike anything weve ever seen.  Indiewire
