FRA/SYR | 2016 | dir. Hala Alabdalla | doc

In this deeply personal documentary, veteran Syrian documentarian Hala Alabdalla invites us to dinner with writer and editor Farouk Mardam-Bey, for a thought-provoking reflection on Syria, culture and identity. Based in France for the last 50 years, he has dedicated his life to promoting contemporary Arabic philosophy and poetry – a bridge between cultures. In the intimacy of his kitchen, Farouk Mardam-Bey attempts to dissipate the fog around Syria and pays tribute to the Syrian people’s resistance.
