Doxbox, Syria’s only independent documentary film festival, is coming to Edinburgh.
In light of the ongoing repression in Syria, Doxbox is taking place in exile around the world, screening Syrian documentaries to mark the first anniversary of the start of the uprising in Syria.
The film Black Stone is a touching portrait of a district on the fringe of Damascus. To help their families, four children collect scrap metal for resale. Their wanderings through the city give them great delight and a chance to dream.
Following the film we will present a panel discussion on the role of creative resistance in light of the current events in Syria.
This film was brought to Filmhouse in collaboration with Reel Festivals and the Edinburgh University Middle Eastern Society. Come to show solidarity, share ideas and most importantly see a unique film about real life in Syria.
