A71 Entertainment & Fathom Film Group & The Mosaic Institute proudly present 'My Enemy, My Brother,' directed by Ann Shin, for a one week Toronto theatrical engagement.

Join us for the premiere of the Canadian Screen Awards nominated feature film at The Carlton Cinema in Toronto:

March 9 — 15, 2018. [NEW TIME] 6:30 p.m. daily

The award winning feature documentary returns to Toronto for its theatrical debut after an extensive festival run, where the film garnered accolades from around the world.

Accompanying the theatrical release of 'My Enemy, My Brother' is the world premiere of EYE OF THE BEHOLDER a dramatic and spectacular 5-minute FREE VR experience made available in the lobby for all theatre goers prior to the screening. Set in a conflict zone, the player encounters another soldier in a bunker who may be friend or foe. Whether the player decides to collaborate with or combat the other in the ensuing challenges, determines who gets out alive. This short VR experience questions how we prejudge others, and is a teaser for a longer VR game that will be released later in 2018. The VR experience is produced with the participation of the Bell Fund.

“It’s an incredible story of humanity and chance set against the background of the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s and present-day Vancouver.” — POV Magazine

“In the Toronto filmmaker Ann Shin’s poignant documentary, we meet Najah (an Iraqi) and Zahed (an Iranian), once young soldiers in the brutal Iran-Iraq War. The shooting has long stopped, but the wounds for both of them are open ones.” — The Globe and Mail

My Enemy, My Brother is directed/co-produced/co- written by Ann Shin, and co-written/edited by Eamonn O'Connor. It is executive produced by Melanie Horkan, Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee and Hannah Donegan. Duraid Munajim is the director of photography. Original score is composed by Todor Kobakov.
A71 Entertainment is the Canadian distributor. My Enemy, My Brother was made possible through funding by Super Channel, Canada Media Fund, Rogers Documentary Fund, OMDC — Ontario Media Development Corporation, Telefilm Canada, Rogers Group of Funds, Kalliopeia Foundation, Canada Film or Video Production Tax Credit, Ontario Media Development Corporation Film and Television Tax Credits, Hot Docs Ted Rogers Fund, Bravo Fact,
The New York Times Opinion Section, and Bell Media.

“At the heart of this story is an affirmation of humanity that crosses religious and political differences,” says Shin. “The film reveals this very intimate relationship between these two former enemies, and proves that healing and redemption are possible. There is a message of hope and promise in their journeys and I really wanted to share it filmically.”
