BETWEEN WAR AND WAITING
Come to our „Syrian Welcome Aperitif with Documentary and Discussion“!
The new documentary film series of Babette Bürgi and Kristijan Gucanin will be screened @ De Bovenkamer in Zeist, Dijnselburgerlaan1 hal 20, Zeist, The Netherlands
Saturday 12 December, 5pm
Event on Facebook
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)
