Director: Marcel Mettelsiefen
Watani: My Homeland tells the story of one family’s escape from war torn Aleppo, and their attempt to make a new life in Germany.
Hammoudi, Helen, Farah and Sara are the young children of Free Syrian Commander Abu Ali Slaibeh. They live on the frontline of the civil war in Aleppo, the only family living in a derelict warzone that was once a busy residential neighborhood. After their father is captured by ISIS, the family is forced to flee their homeland and start a new life in a small town in Germany.
