European Heritage Days

Our new documentary Between War and Waiting will be screened at the upcoming European Heritage Days:

Saturday September 24th at 20:00 on Epigraphic Museum in Athens

Violence and tolerance will be topics in Athens. We hope that the movie stimulates the discussion and opens a dialogue for acceptance of people in need and cultural diversity.

What do we know about the war in Syria? About the historic and diverse culture that is getting unhindered destroyed, about the people who are fleeing in huge numbers to Europe, asking for support and understanding? How is the situation for the refugees right here in Kamp Zeist and what can we do to help? Today we are looking for the dialogue between the people, who had to flee from their homeland and local people, who are interested to get to know them. The film series BETWEEN WAR AND WAITING will have its premiere and will be discussed after the screening. For the following panel discussion we invited Steffie de Pous from BECAUSE WE CARRY, Babette Bürgi and Kristijan Gucanin, the directors of the film series, Rajai Al-Hussini, Syrian engineer and protagonist of the film and Wajdy Mansour, Syrian Manager, who also lives in Kamp Zeist. Together we want to cast a critical eye over the situation and have a social gathering during a Syrian aperitif.

(The discussion will be held in English)
