FILM SCREENING |

Ossama Mohammed Screening and Conversation (2).png

An evening with acclaimed Syrian filmmaker Ossama Mohammed presenting Silvered Water: Syria Self-Portrait, “a rare poetic work that powerfully expresses the humanity and perseverance of Syrians, as it explores the topography of their country torn by civil war,” and a selection form an earlier short Step by Step. “A frightening, captivating and insightful portrait of how the Baath regime transformed generations of peasants into citizen-soldiers and sent the poor in droves to provincial cities as migrant laborers.”

Reception to follow.
