After his Sundance award-winning documentary RETURN TO HOMS (2013), Talal Derki returned to his Syrian 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.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for World Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, OF FATHERS AND SONS was also nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 2019 Acedemy Awards.

This film is in Arabic language with English subtitles on screen.
