STORIES FROM SYRIA AND BEYOND
Thursday 6th February, 7.15pm for 7.30pm (sharp), Donations on the Door.
We are delighted to present a double bill on Syria, with an interview with the author of ‘Syria’s Secret Library’ – and a short film – Suspended – tracking the journey of a Syrian refuge now settled in Hertfordshire.
‘Herts Welcomes Refugees’ is a charity helping to resettle refugees and making those seeking sanctuary feel welcome. In collaboration with composer/sound designer Katie Seaton and artist Rosie Wyllie, they produced a 15 minute animated film called ‘Suspended’. It tells the story of a Syrian family now living in the UK. The words are those of the father, spoken in English by an actor, and we have been told by other Syrians that this is their story too. It was a finalist at the 2020 Film Only Film festival. [Warning – includes a couple of tough scenes, describing his torture].
