A Tale of Two Syrias (Director Yasmin Fedda) was screened recently at SOAS, University of London in the department of Anthropology and Sociology. Yasmin was on hand to answer questions at the end of the screening.

SOAS, University of London is the only Higher Education institution in Europe specialising in the study of Asia, Africa and the Near and Middle East. SOAS is a remarkable institution. Uniquely combining language scholarship, disciplinary expertise and regional focus, it has the largest concentration in Europe of academic staff concerned with Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

A Tale of Two Syrias offers a unique perspective on what the dream of freedom means to two very different people in the face of a brutal regime, offering a vital snapshot of life in the year before Syria’s uprising.
