Syriske Filmdager i Oslo i Cinemateket

10-13 Feb




Seven fates intersect in war-torn Damascus: The young, married Maya is in the hospital with terminal cancer. She is visited by Hani, her former teacher and lover, who was recently released from prison. Maya’s father, an official of the Assad government, disturbs the togetherness. Maya’s friends Hala and Naya quarrel over Hala’s lover Kinan, a disgruntled regime opponent. In Maya’s room is also the cancerous Dersem. Their husband Bachir has no money for medication and therefore desperately tries to sell his kidney. Maya’s father leaves the city to kill himself, but meets Sobhi, who has to take his pregnant wife to the hospital, and reluctantly takes them away. Majd wants to flee to Saudi Arabia with his family, but his wife fears losing her rights there. The young dancer Lila is looking forward to her first ballet appearance and also invites the nice soldiers from the roadblock next door. However, it will never come to its debut.
Artfully constructed, but realistically filmed insight into life in the midst of the ruins of the torn Syria from the civil war.
Short film: A Spring has passed by
The winds of change have passed by and were called the Arab Spring. He is a man swept by the blowing winds that had taken all that’s dear to him and left him with invisible remnants imprinted deep into his soul.



Undocumented is a story of hope, second chances and new beginnings. It follows three distinctly different individuals on journeys of self discovery as they each deal with unexpected events that transform their regular and predictable lives.



Therese, the mayor’s wife in a Lebanese village, joyfully prepares for an overnight visit of her daughter’s suitor and his parents. She excitedly shares the happy news of the engagement with pictures of her beloved brother who was killed by a Syrian bomb 20 years ago and is still bizarrely present in every corner of her house. Only when the long-awaited guests are at her doorstep, she discovers they are Syrian; this engagement will only happen over Therese’s dead body!



In one day four Syrian women struggle in the shadow of the war in the country to survive. Four women from different backgrounds and environments intersect their destinies in one place. From the reality of bitter and real the film draws the cases of these women to be highlighted sharply and exceeded the reality of women in the shadows of wars that grind everyone without distinction. Between the thirsty and the swinging destinies revolves around the events of this film, which opens a door was close to it.
