After the Syrian uprising of 2011, eight former political detainees decided to break the silence about the years they spent in the infamous Tadmor Prison (Palmyra), the harshest prison of Assad’s regime.
As they know that words alone fall short of expressing the cruelty of the torture, fear, contempt and humiliation they suffered, they decided to relive, together, their ordeal. Tadmor is a story about the inhumanity of the regime but also about the prisoners’ will to survive. Thousands of other detainees in Tadmor did not.
Former prisoner in Tadmor, Faraj Baraykdar and film director Monika Borgmann will talk before and after the screening of the documentary film Tadmor.
Syrian Doc Days is organized by Oslo Dokumentarkino, in collaboration with Syrian Peace Action Centre (SPACE).
