My Father. My Uncle.

A moving documentary, chronicling the story of 26-year old, Iraq-born Sinan, who was adopted at birth by his uncle Farouq and his German wife Brunhilde. Following the couple’s split a few years later, he was taken by his mother to Darmstadt, Germany, where he has lived ever since. In ‘My Father, My Uncle’, we watch as Sinan prepares to meet his original family, now exiled from Iraq and based in Sharjah, UAE. Knowing little about his Arabic origins or culture, Sinan views the impending meeting with trepidation. However, while the reunion brings a complex tangle of emotions to the surface, the experience proves to be an enriching and insightful experience for all concerned, as their respective cultures and ideologies are shared and debated.
