In relation to Conversations in the Midst of the Syrian Conflict,

A Visual Response to the Syrian Conflict via the Domestic and Personal project;

The research looked at the ethical issues of war images and explored an alternative creative response that focuses on the personal standpoint.

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.

Haunted

Responds to the conflicted state of mind of someone in exile; between nostalgia for a past life and excitement about the new one, worrying about war in the home country and the hope that it will come to an end. It presents the attempt to live a normal life whilst home is being shattered. The piece shows the dance as nothing but an expression of madness and denial, and at the same time the dancer is still haunted by her home's crisis, memories and culture. Made by Hala Georges.
