Roderick Cabrido’s ‘Children’s Show‘ is included in the line-up of feature films that will be shown in the Duhok 3rd International Film Festival running from September 9 to 16, 2015 at Iraqi Kurdistan.
‘Children’s Show’ is Cabrido’s first full-length film. It tells the story of two boys, Jun and Al, who lose their mother to suicide after their father leaves her for another woman. The brothers move in with their grandmother and go into semi-legal boxing matches to earn a few money. However, encounters with their heavy-drinking father are even more dangerous. One of these encounters proves devastating for Al, and Jun commits an unspeakable act.
