Belarus – Film Screening – Lovers‘ Notebooks
Screening of the film Lovers‘ Notebooks by Eyad Aljarod, including a Q&A with the director.
The film takes you on the night-time adventures of the writers on the walls in the Syrian village of Saraqeb. Their slogans and other texts have been used to document the revolution, both its euphoria and failure, for three years. Like pages of a book, the walls manifest the basis of their existence, providing protection from outside violence. They also bear the names of martyrs, common expressions, poetry, revolutionary slogans and other graffiti.
