A Syrian Love Story

Monday, April 3rd @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Directed by Sean McAllister

Comrades and lovers Amer and Raghda met in a Syrian prison cell 15 years ago. When McAllister first meets their family in 2009, Raghda is back in prison leaving Amer to look after their 4 boys alone; but as the ‘Arab Spring’ sweeps the region, the family’s fate shifts irrevocably. Filmed over 5 years, the film charts their incredible odyssey to political freedom. For Raghda and Amer, it is a journey of hope, dreams and despair: for the revolution, their homeland and each other. This film was nominated for the 2015 European Film Awards (European Documentary) and 2016 BAFTA Awards (Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer)
