The War Show + Q&A with director Andreas Dalsgaard Cert. 18 Picture house at FACT

  • Running time100 minutes
  • DirectorAndreas Dalsgaard, Obaidah Zytoon
  • GenreDocumentary

The War Show portrays the war in Syria from a young people's perspective. A Syrian radio DJ documents the experiences of herself and her friends throughout the 2011 Arab Spring, subsequent protests against Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and the resulting repression, forced migration and extremism.

The film is a personal road movie that follows Syria's fate and a group of friends whose lives and dreams turn into nightmares, while the country collapses into chaos.

This screening is part of the Crossings season. Crossings: Stories of Migration, is an ICA-led UK-wide film and events programme organised in partnership with The Goethe-Institut and with support from the BFI, awarding funds from The National Lottery. The season explores the stories of modern-day migration and reflects on cinema’s potential to question the ways in which migration is often framed. By presenting these narratives on screen, the season aims to open space for dialogue at a time when this is more urgent than ever.
