Film Info: Interdom


Scene from "Interdom" (photo © Nasir Al-Jezairi)

In the past 70 years, Interdom, an elite boarding school in the former Soviet Union, educated children from all five continents in the Communist ideology. They were children from conflict areas or children of political leaders.

They all have one experience in common: the collapse of Communism has altered the direction of their predetermined fates. After 14 years they meet again in Russia for the school’s 70th anniversary.

Nasir Al-Jezairi was born in 1971 in Iraq. In 1979 his family escaped Saddam Hussein to Lebanon, but the war in Beirut in 1981 forced his parents to send him to a boarding school in the Soviet Union. In 1989 Gorbatchov’s Perestroika put an end to his time there. Since then, he has been living, studying and working in Munich, London and Berlin. Interdom (2006) is his first independent film after working on various TV and film productions.
