In the heart of the heart of another country

Film Festival (Athens – Beirut)


In the heart of the heart of another country* is a collaborative project between contemporary art and sociο-political issues.

The project aims to open up multiple discussions about the situation in Syria and the political and socio-economic crisis in both Greece and Lebanon. As well to prompt interactions between the ways people resist in each region. Moreover, a significant factor is the presence of displaced people, the so-called migrants or refugees, and their cultural influence on artistic and activist practices in these three countries.

Artists, activists and researchers from Greece, Lebanon and Syria or based in these countries will share and exchange thoughts, methods and skills to analyze, intervene and create new perspectives within the radical current socio-political transformations the three countries are experiencing.
