Scheherazade's Diary - (يوميّات شهرزاد)
Sortie prévue le 07 Sep. 2020
This engaging tragicomic documentary follows women inmates through a 10-month drama therapy/theatre project set up in 2012 by director Zeina Daccache at the Baabda Prison in Lebanon.
Through their unprecedented theater initiative, entitled Scheherazade in Baabda, these "murderers of husbands, adulterers and drug felons" reveal their stories—tales of domestic violence, traumatic childhoods, failed marriages, forlorn romances, and deprivation of motherhood. The women of Baabda Prison share their personal stories, and in doing so, hold up a mirror to Lebanese society and all societies that repress women.
