Wajd – Songs of Separation
Amar Chebib | English, Türkçe, العربية | 87 minutes
Shot initially in Syria prior to the civil war, Wajd is a window into the lives of three Syrian refugee musicians as they face their traumatic experiences. Verite footage of their daily lives weaves together with bittersweet musical performances, traditional Su ceremonies, and poetic imagery of a pre-war Syria that no longer exists. What unfolds is a cinematic meditation on loss, yearning, and faith.
