Screen International

To mark Refugee Week we welcome filmmaker Andreas Dalsgaard for a screening of his documentary charting Syria's spiral from peaceful uprisings to armed conflict, shown through the intimate perspective of a group of young friends.

A Syrian radio DJ documents the experiences of herself and her friends throughout the 2011 Arab Spring, subsequent protests against Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and the resulting repression, forced migration and extremism. The film is a personal road movie that follows Syria's fate and a group of friends whose lives and dreams turn into nightmares, while the country collapses into chaos.

Part of Crossings: Stories of Migration, an Institute of Contemporary Arts-led UK-wide film and events programme supported by the BFI using National Lottery funding and in partnership with the Goethe-Institut.
