Filmscreening of 'The War Show' and talk by director Andreas Dalsgaard.
In March 2011, radio host Obaidah Zytoon and friends join the street protests against the oppressive regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Knowing the Arab Spring will forever change their country; this group of artists and activists begin filming their lives and the events around them. But as the regime’s violent response spirals the country into a bloody civil war, their hopes for a better future are tested by violence, imprisonment and death.
”Obaidah has shown immense courage by sharing this footage and telling her story. For someone who is not Syrian, it is impossible to truly fathom the horror that has befallen them and their country, or how Syrians still live with the war every day of their lives” - Andreas Dalsgaard
