Children of the Enemy

Gorki GLASER-MÜLLER Swedish, Denmark 99 Min M18 (Some Mature Content) Asian Premiere

A stirring and heart-rending portrait of one man’s lonely battle to save his grandchildren from a Syrian prison camp, against his government’s inaction.

“Life isn’t worthless. What we do in this life matters.” These are words from a letter by Patricio’s daughter Amanda—wife and accomplice to one of Sweden’s most notorious ISIS recruiters. The startling disjuncture between words and deeds forms the core of this harrowing documentary. With the couple killed amidst the defeat of ISIS in Syria, their seven young children become subject to the humanitarian disaster that is al-Hol prison camp.
