Followed by exploring relevant literature and creative artwork by Syrian and Middle Eastern artists.

 

These research steps have all prepared me to produce a series of short films, created in response to collected interviews and materials from participants living the Syrian war and to my personal experience living far from this radical event that changed my life and the lives of so many.

From my Car's Window

Inspired by poetry, this video combines Syrian folk music, Syrian poetry by Nizar Qabbani, and shots from London in winter-time. The shots that were taken from my car’s window show four minutes from rainy London while talking about the city of Damascus and the relationship between a displaced one far from their torn home town. In this way, it combines two contrasting worlds in one frame, rejoices them and celebrates both. Made by Hala Georges.
