The latest work from award-winning documentary filmmaker Yasmin Fedda offers a unique personal perspective on recent events in Syria. Largely filmed before the Syrian uprising in 2011, it captures a sense of life in Damascus and individuals struggling to find a space where they can feel safe, secure and respected. The politics of repression and the heavy hand of Bashar al-Assad’s regime are never far from view but the human interest lies in the stories of Salem, a homeless fashion designer, and Botrous, a football-loving monk who lives in the remote hillside monastery of Mar Musa. An amazing insight into a land of great beauty and brutal oppression.

Director Yasmin Fedda and producer Jim Hickey will introduce the film, followed by a Q&A session.
