INSYRIATED

The Dissidents

T H U   1 7   M A Y  |  9 P M

    Anchored in hot news, this gripping film tells the story of a family in Syria. A mother is trying desperately to keep her family together while a war rages outside. There is hardly any water and every trip outside the door spells danger on account of the snipers on the rooftops above. When there is knocking on the door the apartment that was once a familiar home has now become a prison. Every decision now could be a matter of life or death.

      Insyriated (2017) was produced with the support of the Belgian Development Cooperation.
