    Imad’s Childhood / Imads Barndom

    Sweden-Kurdistan-Latvia, 77', 2021

    age recommendation: 13+

    Imad, a five-year-old Yazidi child, is released from ISIS captivity after two and a half years. During this time, ISIS has brainwashed Imad and he considers himself one of the ISIS fighters. His eyes still emanate innocence, but he shows no other feelings than hatred for his mother and resentment towards those around him. Will Imad's family be able to help him overcome his trauma and become again the child he once was?
