Phenomenal Shorts: Syrian Stories, Female Voices

Part of the Phenomenal Women Curated by SDI Strand


Women in Syria have not only borne the brunt of the country’s lengthy civil war, they have been marginalised, abused and rendered invisible. In this collection of short films, presented by the Scottish Documentary Institute in collaboration with the British Council and Bidayyat, female Syrian filmmakers share their experiences and perspectives of being a refugee.
