Dox Box Global Day – in Denmark

For our Danish readers: Gratis entré til syriske film + introduktion i solidaritet med DOX BOX torsdag den 15. marts kl. 17-19. I Husets Biograf præsenterer CPH:DOX en særvisning af to aktuelle, syriske dokumentarfilm med introduktion. En af filmene, den splinternye Tournesol, er en rapport fra den krigshærgede oprørsby Homs, skabt af en syrisk filmmager, der naturligvis er anonym. Det er en unik mulighed for faktisk at få et indblik i livet – og døden – i den by, der strømmer så mange modsatrettede nyheder fra.

Visningen er en spontan aktion, der finder sted som en del af DOX BOX Global Day – en global manifestation af solidaritet med den syriske dokumentarfilm-festival DOX BOX, der skulle have fundet sted den 7. – 15. marts. Som følge af regimets overgreb på befolkningen har festivalledelsen imidlertid besluttet at aflyse årets festival. I stedet har de inviteret samarbejdspartnere verden over til at deltage i en global éndags-festival den 15. marts, som ikke blot skulle have været festivalens afslutningsaften – men som også er ét-årsdagen for den folkelige opstand i landet.

DOX BOX Global Day afholdes simultant i hele 28 lande verden over, fra New York og London til Vancouver og Malmö. CPH:DOX er glade for medvirke til en aften med film i solidaritet med DOX BOX, de syriske filmskabere og det syriske folk for at bakke op om deres kamp for frihed.

Aftenen er arrangeret i samarbejde med DOX BOX, Proaction Film, IMS (International Media Support) og Husets Biograf.
