Bradley Hutchinson and Alex Stonehill’s BARZAN is an intimate portrait of a suburban family ripped apart by a terrorism accusation. After fleeing from oppression of the Kurdish people in Iraq, making their escape through Afghanistan and Pakistan, the Malakandi family landed safely in Seattle, Washington and settled into life in the United States. But an unexpected encounter with another immigrant sends the family’s lives into a tailspin, bringing the full weight of post-9/11 America down upon them. Shot in Iraq and Seattle, this investigative documentary examines terrorism, immigration, and the sacrifices we make to protect the American dream.
