Philippe Van Leeuw, 90 min, Drama, in Arabic with English subtitles, Belgium/ France/ Lebanon, 2017


Realized in closed indoors, “INSYRIATED” narrates the everyday life of a family locked in its own house, in Damascus, while the war is raging outside. The mother attempts to keep her family safe as a sniper lies in wait outside her home.

Trapped in their apartment, the family members retreat to the kitchen to hide following a sudden attack. The film depicts the siege and confinement imposed by wars. Perhaps the quarantine we live in today, and its restrictions, gives us a feel what it means to be locked down while conflict rages on the street?

The film was presented in the Panorama Section of the 67th Berlin International Film Festival and has won the Audience Award for Best Film. It also received the Silver Pyramid Award for Best Actress at Cairo International Film Festival, Lumiere Awards for Best French-Language Film and the Audience Award at Thessaloniki Film Festival. It was also screened at Toronto International Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, Stockholm Film Festival and others.
