SYNOPSIS – “Mostra Documentaire : Hors Syrie”

Because we believe in the virtue of difference and in a multi-faceted approach of the truth, SYRIA.ART and CASA DOC’ highlight independent Syrian video makers who offer a different perspective on today’s Syria, for the span of an evening.

Stories, cities, people, children, joy despite the war, a dance among the ruins, the smile of a kid torn from his house and school, the dream of rebuilding and of continuing life.

This projection is an invitation to take a journey, to cross a bridge through what you thought you knew and through an elsewhere which, despite the suffering, has not yet lost hope, and a people who, despite the disarray, has not yet said his last word…

PRESENTATION

– 21h00: Meeting with Khaled Youssef from the SYRIA.ART Association to exchange ideas around his programming

– As night is falling: Projection and exchanges around the short films
