Synopsis

As if searching for surviving memories in the wreckage of a war, Canadian-born director Émilie Serri revisits archival footage, stories of people in exile, and the roots of her secretive father to rebuild testimonies of a seemingly lost Syria. In the reminiscences of an unknown past, accessible only in fragments, the filmmaker crosses the borders between intimate and collective, between the desires to recreate and to forget, and dreams of a country as distant as it is alive, as unique as it is shared. *(C.M)
