Of Fathers and Sons

After his award-winning The Return to Homs, documentarian Talal Derki returned to Syria, where he gained the trust of a radical Islamist family and shared their daily life for two years. In Of Fathers and Sons, he focuses primarily on their children, providing an extremely rare look at what it means to grow up with a father whose only dream is to establish an Islamic caliphate. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for World Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, Of Fathers and Sons captures the chilling moment when jihadism is born.
