“Privacy of Wounds”

Privacy of Wounds

Dalia Kury, 70 min, Documentary, in Arabic with English subtitles, 2018


Hasan, Mazen and Khaldoon were political prisoners once tortured in Syria’s infamous prisons, now living in Europe. Even after the hellish experience they went through, these three men still had a thirst for life. Their positivity provoked a different kind of film which reveals the stories survivors tell themselves to cope and overcome, and that gives us a peek into what makes them so resilient and optimistic after all they went through.

Convinced that the men would communicate with much more transparency and honesty when talking with other ex-detainees than with filmmakers, the director devised a simulated set. In this documentary, the three survivors agree to be locked up again in a simulated cell in Oslo for three days with cameras filming their every word and every move. The men meet for the first time in the cell and organically start to find their way down memory lane, sharing with one another what they can find.

“Privacy of Wounds” premiered in competition at International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam IDFA where it was nominated for the Human Rights Award; it was also nominated for six other awards such as “The Right to Know” at One World Prague, the “What the Doc” prize at Docs Barcelona, the Dragon Award for Best Nordic Documentary in Gothenburg and the Human Rights award at IDFA.

We thank the director Dalia Kury for her cooperation
