The Ayachis were a poster family for integration in France in the 80's. Three decades later they're back in Syria, fighting a holy war against ISIS and Bashar al-Assad's regime. With THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE HOLY JIHAD director Stéphane Malterre tells a story that challenges our view of the opposition between western liberal values and eastern religious fundamentalism. This is an intriguing, controversial and thought-provoking documentary and a must-see for those who want to understand rather than judge, and who don't believe in easy answers in a complex conflict.
