A FILM FESTIVAL FEAT. MOVIES FROM THE HOME COUNTRIES OF THE CURATORS, FREE ENTRY
To kick off the Kino Asyl event, there will be a screening of “Shakespeare in Zaatari” (Syria 2016 | 35 min. | original version with English subtitles) at 19:00. Zaatari is in Jordan: it is one of the world’s largest refugee camps with approximately 80,000 occupants. The documentary accompanies theatre director Nawar Bulbul in the process of staging two Shakespeare plays with the Syrian children who live there. At 20.30, there will be a second screening: “Buda as sharm foru rikht | Buddha collapsed in shame” (Iran / France 2007 | 81 min. | original version with subtitles): In 2001, Taliban fighters blew up Buddhist statues in Bamyan, one of Afghanistan’s most sacred centres of culture. In the caves of the former monasteries there, a girl called Bakhtay grows up, fighting boys’ gangs of her age in the area while striving to find a place in a new girls’ school.
