Thank you for the continuous support and patience with us during the process of enhancing your viewing experience.
We invite you meantime to explore four stimulating documentaries that initiated self-discovery and awareness for their filmmakers and subjects. In this compilation, we survey father-son relationships, literally and metaphorically. “Who is this man people say I look like?” asks Karim Goury director of “Made in Egypt” who has never met his father. “All I have of his is a photo of my parents together, taken in a restaurant. They look young, beautiful, and maybe in love…”.
In “Diaries of a flying Dog”, Director Bassem Fayad and his tiny dog have something in common: Obsessive-compulsive disorder. Using his biography as a case study, Bassem Fayad lovingly and courageously examines how life goes on while war rages in and around it.
Athens, 1983. 4-year old Bashir is killed during the assassination of his father, a top PLO lieutenant. But what if the boy could come back to life? Bashir’s story is told by director Mahmoud Al Massad in “This is My Picture When I was Dead”. Last but not least, “Terra Cognita” is a not-to-be-missed short documentary from Kabylia, Algeria, directed by Nassim Amaouche. Nassim digs with his father in the rubble of the family home that was bombed in 1957, as they search for his father's lost childhood. Is it a new start between father and son?
