QUEENS OF SYRIA tells the story of fifty women from Syria, all forced into exile in Jordan, who came together in Autumn 2013 to create and perform their own version of the Trojan Women, the timeless Ancient Greek tragedy about the plight of women in war. What followed was an extraordinary moment of cross-cultural contact across millennia, in which women born in 20th century Syria found a blazingly vivid mirror of their own experiences in the stories of a queen, princesses and ordinary women like them, uprooted, enslaved, and bereaved by the Trojan War.

We are screening this film in support of Refugee Week with Moving Worlds. A £50 donation has been made to White Helmets to enable access to the film. Please give as you can on the night to help cover this cost and ideally to give more to this charity.

Popcorn and veggie-hotdogs will be available. Following the film there will be time for questions and discussion.
