REPUBLIC OF SILENCE

France, Germany, Italy, Qatar, Syrian Arab Republic 2021 – Director: Diana El Jeiroudi – Original with English subtitles, Q&A with Diana El Jeiroudi (director)

In exile in Berlin there is calm – but what has been happening in her homeland of Syria for more than a decade makes the director break up inside. The traumas and wounds of experiencing and fleeing from civil war run deep. Skilfully put together from a wide variety of fragments, the film provides a radically personal viewpoint. Uncompromising and moving at the same time. Maren Willkomm

Winner of the Goethe-Institut Award 2021, given at DOK Leipzig
