SYNOPSIS
“At the end, I have lived one-third of my life in Syria and two-thirds in France. Twice more in France than in Syria. But in France I lived some rich and instructive experiences. The most important is the way to accompany from the outside what’s happening inside the arabic countries. How not to break daily with what the country is going through, though living outside. How to stay connected with one’s native country, while building up a real, deep relationship with the country where you live. It is the story of 50 years in France of a syrian, still syrian, but who lives in France at 100%“. (Farouk Mardam-Bey) Through this portrait of Farouk Mardam-Bey, Hala Alabdalla portrays a whole generation of arab men and women living in Europe, with their hopes, their struggles and their delusions.
