WE ARE FROM THERE

2020 - documentary - LB/FR - 82 min

Two Syrian brothers in their mid 20s take a leap of faith and decide to start their lives from scratch in new cities. They leave everything behind except their passion for life, determination, sense of humor and hope for a better future. Their closest cousin, Wissam, films their odysseys for over five years, questioning the true meaning of home, bringing back childhood memories, and exploring the human ability to cope with change as radical as it may be.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Wissam Tanios, led by SAFAR curator Rabih El-Khoury.
