Nezouh12A

Directed by Soudade Kaadan | Syria | 2022 | 1h 44m | Arabic w/ English subtitles | Starring Hala Zein, Kinda Alloush, Samer al Masri, Nizar Alani, Darina Al Joundi

14-year-old Zeina and her family are amongst the last inhabitants of their besieged hometown of Damascus. When a missile rips a giant hole in their home, exposing them to the outside world, it also opens up an unimaginable world of possibility for Zeina. Now confronted with a life-or-death decision, they must grapple with the choice of whether to remain in their familiar yet perilous surroundings or to embark on a journey into the unknown. Delicately weaving lightness and magical-realism among heartbreaking desolation, Soudade Kaadan’s award-winning drama offers a powerful and moving perspective on the Syrian conflict.

We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
