Queens of Syria tells the story of fifty women from Syria, all forced into exile in Jordan, who came together in Autumn 2013 to create and perform their own version of "The Trojan Women," the timeless Ancient Greek tragedy about the plight of women in war.
What followed was an extraordinary moment of cross-cultural contact across millennia, in which women born in 20th century Syria found a blazingly vivid mirror of their own experiences in the stories of a queen, princesses and ordinary women like them, uprooted, enslaved,and bereaved by the Trojan War. NR / 70 min. In Arabic w/ subtitles.
Presented as part of The Seventh Art Stand, an act of cinematic solidarity against Islamophobia. Over 50 independent and arthouse cinemas nationwide are participating in this event throughout the month of May; for more information, please visit: https://www.seventhartstand.com/
