Dir. Karzan Kader

Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama


Aroview: Two Iraqi orphans fantasize about travelling to America and summoning the help of Superman in this simple yet stirring childhood adventure, one that moves into darker territory as the harsh reality of the sibling's journey becomes more apparent.

"Lively and cute, the boys bicker loudly and often as they make their treacherous way across the desert, ignorant of the very real dangers they face until it’s too late. Spectacularly shot in the Kurdistan region of a still risky Iraq, your enjoyment of Bekas will depend on how endearing you find these kids. I adored them and really enjoyed the film." ~ Dan Slevin
