Syrian Stories

syrian stories

To celebrate this year's Refugee Week, Newlyn House is screening a collection of Syrian Stories made in collaboration with the Scottish Documentary Institute and the British Council.

What is it like to be in exile in a country that borders home? This documentary anthology, produced in workshops held in Beirut, Amman and Istanbul in 2017, reflects the diverse experiences of Syrian people displaced by the conflict. In a cinematic journey through different geographic and emotional landscapes we see how, in the words of Syrian author Yassin al-Haj Saleh, “the personal has become public and political… The public and political has become personal”.

Tickets are £10. Half the proceeds from ticket sales will go to Freedom from Tortue.

Tickets are available online at, over the phone: 01736 33 22 22 or directly from the box office, open daily from 10.30am to 10pm.
