A special Screening with a Pre Screening VR experience

The Film:
Behind the Lines
Amany Al-Ali stands out as one of Syria's few female cartoonists, residing in her father's home in Idlib, the last city unconquered by Assad's forces. Like her remaining neighbours she's submitted to relentless Russian airstrikes and caught between advancing troops and extremist groups. Despite acclaim for her art, she faces threats, condemnation, and degradation, causing her to contemplate leaving.

VR Experience:
We Exist, We Resist
Enter the vibrant world of Maremoto, a young Mexican cartoonist who, through her drawings, empowers women and addresses the taboos of her society. 

Visit Maremoto’s studio, join her on an afternoon of making street art and experience what it feels like to move as a woman through a metropolis in Mexico, a country where 10 women are murdered every day and tens of thousands go missing.
