Screening followed by a Q&A with the director Ziad Kalthoum

After he completed his mandatory military service, the filmmaker was held in retention as a sergeant when the uprising started in Syria. During these times, he would go back to his home in Damascus, take off his military uniform and return to his normal life, working as an assistant director. To make sense of this schizophrenic situation, he decides to take his camera and start shooting a ‘making-of’ that will eventually go beyond the film he was assisting in.

Director: Ziad Kalthoum, Syria 2014
Arabic with English subtitles, 75 min.
