2019 - documentary - SY/LB/EG - 60 min

In an attempt to record a standstill life, filmmaker Zeina Alqahwaji trains her camera to examine the intimate life of her aging parents over the course of 8 years since the beginning of a civil movement followed by a war in Syria. Observing scenes of isolation, fear and stagnancy that overshadow life at home, they are still equated with enough sensibilities and love bonding them together against the heaviness of time and war.

On Thursday 15 July at 6pm, Zeina Alqahwaji will be joining the festival in an online panel discussion exploring shooting documentaries in your family home. Register here.
