Winner of the Audience Award at the 2023 Venice Film Festival Nezouh is an allegorical tale of female emancipation set amidst the Syrian conflict in Damascus. When a shell rips a giant hole in the roof of the building where 14-year-old Zeina and her family live, they are suddenly exposed to the outside world. One day, a young boy living nearby lowers a rope through the opening in the family’s roof and Zeina discovers her first taste of freedom. Whilst her father is determined to stay in his home and not become a refugee, this new window opens an unimaginable world of possibilities to her and her mother who now face a dilemma of whether to stay or leave.

Special screening

The screening on 21 May will be followed by a Q&A with director Soudade Kaadan
