Tales about the Lost Land (in this case, Syria) from a single object – a car. Within it, each individual depends on their own capacity for imagination to decide whether to take people to the affective horizon in which they live their lives. ‘Aziza’, directed by Soudad Kaadam, plays with survival strategies in a world that is constantly trying to exterminate not only bodies but also subjectivities.
