Genre: Drama
Written by Mohammad Al Attar, Directed by Aktina Stathaki

Could You Please Look Into the Camera? written in 2011, is based on interviews with detainees of the Syrian regime. Looking into the relationships that develop between Noura, a film-maker, and Zeid, Karim and Farah, three young protesters, the play sheds light on the characters’ personal conflicts and asks pressing questions about responsibility and action, set against the background of the eruption of the Syrian War.

The cast, led by director Aktina Stathaki, includes Tony Naumovski, Theodora Loukas, Sara Galassini and Yannick Trapmann-O’Brien.

Produced by Between the Seas Festival
