My Enemy, My Brother

This 16-minute film is a real life story about two enemies, Zahed and Najah, caught on the opposite sides of the Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988), who became blood brothers for life when, by sheer chance, their paths crossed again twenty years later, this time as war refugees in Vancouver, Canada.
The Oscar-shortlisted and Emmy-nominated film is directed by Ann Shin and Melanie Horkan.
It touches upon several key issues facing us today, from the conflicts in the Middle East to the questions about war survivors, missing people, refugees, freedom of religion or belief and expression, and mental health. Crucially, instead of focusing just on the barbarities of conflict, the film intentionally conveys a strong, positive message about how goodness and humanity can prevail among individuals.

(Film and discussion will be in English / film et discussion en anglais)
