Trailerama: Son of Babylon

The Iraqi-born/London-educated filmmaker Mohamed al Daradji’s third film has been selected to play at next year’s Sundance Film Festival. A young boy and his grandmother look for her son. Since he was a soldier in Saddam Hussein’s army, the chances of success are as likely as finding a haystack in a needle. The story is overly familiar, but there’s little denying child actor Yasser Talib’s charismatic appeal.
