Summary
After making his Sundance award-winning documentary, *Return to Homs*, Talal Derki returned to Syria 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 and his brother Ayman 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. OF FATHERS AND SONS is a work of unparalleled intimacy that captures the chilling moment when childhood dies and jihadism is born. Short-listed for an **Academy Award** for Best Documentary. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for World Documentary at the **Sundance Film Festival.** Nominated for Best Documentary at the **Film Independent Spirit Awards**. *"Clear, vivid and unshakeable. Sincerely eye-opening in its portrayal of inherited Islamist fervor." - Guy Lodge, **Variety***
