Initially intended as a foray into the tradition of caricatures and cartoons in Egypt and Syria, production on this film by celebrated documentary-maker Hala Alabdalla was suddenly halted by the insurgencies in both countries. The result, focusing on art as a vehicle for dissent, is an electrifying and passionate study of the fearless tenacity of Arab artists fighting for freedom and justice. ‘Powerful... a striking viewpoint of a complex and constantly changing time’ – Screen International.
