Haven for Artists Screening: Courage جرأة

French Institute

Courage جرأة is an experimental short film comprised of eight (8) acts in poetic form written by Dayna Ash, and directed by Malak Mroueh. The film tackles identity, freedom, and queer being in the Middle East, where the dominating discourse aims to dim and erase their existence. The “closet” is portrayed as a labyrinth of societal norms and traditions that bodies must navigate to survive, rendering coming out and the spectrum in-between as equally courageous acts.

Courage engages with what it means to live a queer existence in the Middle East, winning Best Experimental Film in the Montreal Independent Film Festival, 2022 & Best Experimental Film in the Berlin Indie Film Festival, 2021.

Admission is £5 which will be donated to a Beirut Mutual Aid network. 

For the safety of the individuals and artists, we ask that no photos or videos are taken of the film and space.
