25th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Tadmor bears witness to one of the worst Syrian jails while showing the incredible strength of desire to live. Eight former Lebanese prisoners act out and describe the horrific experiences, feelings of fear and hopelessness, and the systematic torture and abuse that was intended to physically and mentally destroy the detainees.
This film collaboration between independent German journalist Monika Borgmann (1966) and Lebanese publisher Lokman Slim (1962) began with the feature-length documentary Massaker (2004), which earned international screenings and seven awards, including the Fipresci at the Berlinale.
