Brotherhood film by Meryam Joobeur cover image

Brotherhood (2018) is a 25-minute documentary written and directed by Meryam Joobeur that documents the story of a Tunisian shepherd’s family whose son left home to join the Islamic State at war as a consequence of the Arab Spring Uprising (2010-2013) and is now returning home to Syria. The film “dispels the stereotypical notions of what it means to be Muslim as it deepens our understanding of the Arab world.” A feature-length version is currently in development.
