A Syrian Love Story by Sean McAllister (UK/France/Lebanon/Syria, 2015, 80 min.). Amer and Raghda met in a Syrian prison cell 15 years ago. He first saw her bloodied face after a beating when she was placed in a neighboring cell. Over several months they communicated – and fell in love – through a tiny hole they’d secretly made in the wall. When released, they got married and started a family. This intimate portrait tells the story of a family torn apart by the Assad regime and the chaos of war, helping us to understand why people are literally dying for change in the Arab world.
