The resulting film alternates between scenes of Osama and scenes of the boys, most of whom are under the age of ten and already being trained in the ways of jihad. These latter sequences are by far the more unsettling, as the kids blindly accept whatever they’re told, even bringing a youthful enthusiasm to their indoctrination.

The resulting document of his period filming Abu Osama and his family feels like a movie his subjects could watch without feeling exploited. A lack of overt authorial intervention or challenging of his subjects’ beliefs, of course, doesn’t mean there isn’t critique laced throughout.

It’s ultimately more impressive for its access than it is revealing of drives or beliefs. If Derki’s goal was to capture what causes ideology to spread, he and his camera look without seeing.
