Through Our Eyes screening and Q & A with Samir Mehanovic

Tuesday 19 June, 2018

Filmhouse, 88 Lothian Road, Edinburgh,EH3 9BZ

In sequences filmed over four years, director Samir Mehanovic (The Fog of Srebrenica) gives us a wholly fresh and personal insight into the human catastrophe of the Syrian conflict. A Muslim refugee himself, Mehanovic fled Bosnia in the 1990s and settled in the UK. Drawing on his own experience of claiming asylum, he travels to meet Syrian refugees in camps, on trains and in their new countries of exile, to understand the lives of families fleeing their homes. Featuring music written and performed by refugees, Through Our Eyes is a vivid examination of the consequences of war and displacement, which western media often fail to convey.

Followed by a Q&A with director Samir Mehanovic.
