Cinema Politica Carleton co-presenting Ottawa premiere of A Syrian Love Story

"A profound, intimate and powerful story about hope, dreams, political struggle and despair, and the devastating effects of war on family, love and friendship."

Filmed over 5 years, A SYRIAN LOVE STORY charts an incredible odyssey to political freedom. For Raghda and Amer, it is a journey of hope, dreams and despair: for the revolution, their homeland and each other.

Amer, 45, met Raghda, 40, in a Syrian prison cell 15 years ago. He first saw her bloodied face after a beating when she was placed in a neighboring cell. Over months they communicated through a tiny hole they’d secretly made in the wall. They fell in love and when released got married and started a family together.

Ottawa premiere February 4, 2016 at 6:15 pm with director and protagonist in attendance. Regular Admission $10, Students and Seniors $7. This screening is co-sponsored by CUPW, and co-presented with CP Carleton and Octopus Bookstore.
