The Legacy of Violence: IS, Syria, and the Children of War

How does a child become a jihadist? And how much time is enough to really get to know people and their motives? As far as Syrian documentary director Talal Derki is concerned, days and weeks are not enough. In order to understand how and why children in Syria are becoming radicalized and joining IS, Derki filmed Abu Osama’s family for 330 days spread over a period of over two and a half years. The co-founder of Al-Nusra—the Syrian offshoot of al-Qaeda—dreams of establishing an Islamic caliphate and is raising his two eldest sons according to sharia law. “The children’s perspective reveals not only the whole madness of war but also their own childlike way of not losing hope,” says Talal Derki. With his Oscar-nominated documentary Of Fathers and Sons, he gives insights into a war-torn country and its divided society in search of a better future.

Jakob Augstein has a discussion with Talal Derki about Syria, the psychology of war, and his work. To accompany the discussion Babylon cinema will show Talal Derkis' current film Of Fathers and Sons on the 29.04.19 at 5:30pm. Information and tickets are available on the cinema website.

Once a month on radioeins and the Freitag Salon at Grüner Salon, the journalist and publisher Jakob Augstein sits down with a different guest to discuss politics in culture, society and its constraints, the mechanisms of publicity and lies, and the disappearance of democracy in capitalist societies. radioeins broadcasts the conversations live.

In this setting the stimulation machine of the internet is muted; the Freitag Salon is ‘unplugged,’ as one used to say. Real people talk about real issues, and endangered practice skills are practiced such as taking time, listening, understanding and learning.

The unrivaled model of this topical political discussion format is the legendary interviews by journalist Günter Gaus, which broadcasted back when television was still in black and white.
