Accompanying the theatrical release of My Enemy, My Brother is the world premiere of EYE OF THE BEHOLDER a dramatic and spectacular 30-minute FREE VR experience made available in the lobby for all theatre goers prior to the screening. Set in a conflict zone, players encounter 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 pre-judge others, and is a teaser for a longer VR game that will be released later in 2018.

My Enemy, My Brother tells the real-life story of two former enemies from the Iran-Iraq war who become blood brothers for life. Najah and Zahed meet in Vancouver 30 years after Zahed, an Iranian child soldier saves Najah, a wounded Iraqi soldier’s life, they are now about to embark on an emotional journey back to Iran and Iraq for the first time in 20 years. Their journey takes them into the heart of present-day conflicts in a region ravaged by war and ISIS. Their quest is a surprising affirmation of redemption and humanity.

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 Horkanm, 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.

“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.”
