As part of the Movies that Matter film tour, the documentary Shout will be screened in ten cities from 1 till 28 November. Directors Ester Gould and Sabine Lubbe Bakker will be present at the screenings to talk to the audience.
Syrian soul mates Ezat en Bayan were born on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Having turned eighteen, they seize the opportunity to go and study in Syria, the unknown mother country. The capital Damascus offers new freedom, but gradually reveals itself as an individualist place, in which it is not easy to feel at home. And where one has to be careful about what one says. What started as an adventure turns into a dilemma. Will they choose for the future they always dreamt of or the secure environment they left behind?
