A film by Talal Derki. In Arabic with German subtitles.

[Credits] [Termine] [Trailer]

Talal Derki, a Syrian direc­tor, returns to his home­land loo­king for ans­wers; he wants to under­stand what makes peop­le radi­ca­li­ze, dri­ving them into the hands of the so-cal­led “Islamic State”. Talal gains the trust of a radi­cal Islamist fami­ly and obser­ves the dai­ly life of its mem­bers for more than two years. His came­ra main­ly focu­ses on the child­ren, pro­vi­ding an extre­me­ly rare insight into what it means to grow up with a father who is a mem­ber of a jiha­dist orga­ni­sa­ti­on. Osama and his bro­ther Ayman both love and admi­re their father and obey his orders. However, while Osama plans to fol­low the path of radi­ca­li­sa­ti­on, Ayman pre­fers to go back to school.
