BEFORE FATHER GETS BACK (2017)
DIR. MARI GULBIANI
In the darkened classroom, cracked white walls serve as a movie screen. The children’s first cinematic experience is about to begin. For Iman and Eva, two Muslim girls living in a remote mountain village in Georgia, that becomes a turning point. The experience inspires them to take the camera and start filming their daily lives. The girls are growing up in a valley rumored to be infected by radicalism, where most people live with constant fear. They worry that their loved ones might decide to sacrifice their lives in the name of God.
