Junoon Festival will present four films focused on different approaches, stories, and experiences related to cultural barriers, immigration, and identity.
We are glad to invite you to see the third movie:
The film narrates the struggles, successes, and dreams of three women from Syria. The unique storytelling technique delves into the challenges Fatma, Weam, and Malake had to face and the hard choices they were forced to take for their family, self, and land. From motherhood to abandoning families, and immigration, "Her Stories" discusses how the war molded these women into revolutionary beings who defied cultural and societal barriers to build strength and independence after living for ten years in a warzone.
After the screening, we will have an open discussion via zoom with the filmmaker Abd Al-Kader Habak and the film's protagonists Weam Ghabbash, Malake Harbliya, and Fatma Al Humeid.
