Storyline

THE BLOOD OF MY BROTHER goes behind the scenes of one Iraqi family's struggle to survive amidst the carnage of the growing Shia insurgency. Nineteen-year-old Ibrahim dreams of revenge when his brother is shot and killed by an American patrol. With scenes of fighting and death on the streets of Baghdad, this is the closest most viewers will ever come to being in Iraq; kneeling in prayer amidst a thousand Muslim worshipers, feeling the roar of low-flying Apaches, riding atop a sixty-ton tank, driving with masked resistance fighters to attack American positions, fleeing the threat of an overwhelming response, the blood in the street, a tank on fire, or the cold, distant stare of a dead Iraqi fighter.

pain, suffering, anger, and loss
8 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Blood of My Brother is about the anguish and need for revenge felt by a young Iraqi man whose brother (Ra'ad) was killed by an American patrol while guarding a Mosque. You are taken into the streets of Iraq and meet the relatives and friends of Ra'ad. They talk about the hard times under Saddam and the hard times with American occupation. You also see another side where the deeply religious people want no more bloodshed for any reason but mostly the suppressed need for revenge. Lots of footage of the grieving and suffering interleaved with calls for peace and calls for revenge from religious leaders. This is not an entertainment film. It is simply a film about the pain, suffering, anger, and loss of a group of Iraqis.
