Talal Derki’s (Return to Homs) intimate, widely praised documentary, winner of the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, centres on a radical Islamist family and their harsh existence as war rages around them in Syria. Derki has returned to the country for this portrait of one of the founders of the local branch of Al-Qaeda, and his eight young sons, as they prepare to join a Jihadist training camp. 

An intrepid, cold sweat-inducing study of Jihadi radicalization in the home from celebrated Syrian docmaker Talal Derki.
