In the presence of director Émilie Serri.
An intimate record on the possibility of reanimating lost home cities. In Damascus Dreams, Syrian cities are reconstructed by virtue of poetic imagination, alongside trajectories of displacement and from the vantage points of the exiled: What remains of home when it is struck by wars and destruction? How can one relate to it, after it had become inaccessible? Director Émilie Serri masterfully weaves the story of her protagonists with the history of her family, as well as her own memories of Damascus and her desire to reconnect with a city that has undeniably shaped her life.
