Film Screening: Queens of Syria

We screened 'Queens of Syria' on 6 November by director Yasmin Fedda at our office. The movie documented the two-month journey of Syrian refugee women in producing a play in Jordan, as well as the various barriers that they overcame to successfully put on this play. The movie screening was followed by a Skype discussion with the director, who shed some light on the production of the movie as well as some of the gender dynamics that played into the entire process.
