On July 7th the documentary A Syrian Love Story will be screened at IDFA by Night.
Amer and Raghda met in a Syrian prison 20 years ago. They fell in love, and after leaving prison they married and had children. Sean McAllister films the family for over five years and almost becomes part of it. When he himself is arrested, the raw family saga ends up getting a new, tragic twist. McAllister’s tried-and-true, unpolished, dynamic style of filmmaking provides frighteningly powerful insight into what it means to be on the run.
This free open air screening takes place at Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam and will start at 10.00 PM.
