Saturday Jun 03 04:00 PM


Doris Duke Theatre

About the Film:

Part of the Seventh Art Stand

Sponsored by Hawaii J20+ and the Still and Moving Center

Directed by Feras Fayyad. Syria. 2017. 104 min. Arabic with English subtitles.

In the middle of the night a red fire truck rushes through the streets. We meet Mahmoud and Subhi inside the car engaged in discussion: Are we going to die now? They follow the smell of what they fear is a chemical bomb attack. This is Aleppo, where death surrounds you. Dark and empty with deserted buildings, telling the story of a thousand disrupted lives. Through this trip, searching for survivors, viewers experience the personal story behind the war. Khalid, Subhi and Mahmoud—all founding members of the White Helmets in Aleppo, a group of ordinary citizens who are the first to enter the destroyed buildings and scour through the rubble in search of bodies and signs of life—are now living more or less under siege and constant bombing together with the remaining 350,000 civilians in Aleppo.

Join us for a post screening Skype discussion with the director Feras Fayyad and Syrian writer and political dissident Yassin al-Haj Saleh. Moderated by Hawaii J20+.
