Crescent Arts Centre – ‘Born in Syria’ Screening @ The Crescent Arts Centre
Oct 25 @ 6:15 pm – 7:45 pm

Since civil war started in Syria in 2011, an estimated 9 million Syrians have fled their homes, half of them children. With a soundtrack composed by Gabriel Yared (The English Patient, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Cold Mountain) this feature length documentary film follows seven young children for a year. We witness everything through their eyes, from their escape from Syria, through refugee camps in the Middle East, to their arrival into the ‘Promised Land’ of Europe. We continue to watch as they face many new and unexpected challenges as they attempt to integrate in their new homes.

Filmed in 12 countries, this is a unique testimony to the refugee experience.

Dir: Hernán Zin – Denmark & Spain – 2016 – 86 mins – Age: 12+ – in Arabic with English Subtitles

Tickets £5/£4
