Nezouh (2022)

Sobre o filme

14-year-old Zeina and her family are the last to have stayed in their besieged hometown of Damascus in Syria. A missile rips a giant hole in their home, exposing them to the outside world. When a rope is mysteriously lowered into the hole, Zeina gets her first taste of freedom, and an unimaginable world of possibility opens up for her. As the violence outside escalates, the family is pressured to evacuate, but Mutaz, her father, is adamant that they stay, refusing to flee to the uncertain life of a refugee. Faced with a life-or-death dilemma, Zeina and her mother must make the choice whether to stay or leave.

Winner of the Audience Award at the Horizons Extra section at Venice Film Festival.
