Before the father returns

Documentary Competition

Antes que el padre regrese_STILL.jpg


In a dark classroom, cracked white walls serve as a movie screen. We are in a remote mountain town in Georgia. The light from the projector breaks the darkness: the children's first movie experience is about to begin. Among them are Iman and Eva, two Muslim girls for whom the experience becomes a turning point that motivates them to take the  camera and start filming their daily lives. The girls are growing up in a valley, infested by radicalism, where people live in constant sacrifice of their lives in the name of God.
