THE WATERS OF BABYLON

Winner > Best Feature Documentary
Synopsis
1914-1918, Burma, Turkish POW camp, and another side Turkey, British POW camp. Hidden truths still remain silent despite the intervening century. Descendants of Turkish and British soldiers who crossed paths in Mesopotamia during the First World War think about the unknown stories of their grandfathers and how it has affected their lives. The film progresses with testimonies from two different nations’ prisoners of war, who have been left outside of the historical framework, and showcases the shared painful effects of war’s cruelty upon individuals, and the bond that distinguishes the reality of history from memory and forgiveness.
