The reality of life as a civilian in modern-day Damascus is explored in gripping and visceral detail in this chilling chamber piece. Trapped inside her own home as the city around her is reduced to rubble, mother of three Oum Yazan takes comfort in the familiarity of household routines with only a barricaded door separating the family from the war zone outside. One day, an ominous knock on the door signals that their time in hiding is almost up. Executed with gut-punch realism and formal flair, this is a tense and immersive portrait of the everyday fight for survival in Syria today.

The Monday 11 September 18.30 screening will be attended by some special guests. Alison Phipps, UNESCO Professor: Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts;  co-convener of Glasgow Refugee Asylum and Migration Network, University of Glasgow will co-host an introduction and discussion with Oudai Tozan, UNESCO-RILA Refugee Ambassador at the University of Glasgow, from Syria.
