Émilie Serri is a Canadian-born songwriter, visual artist and filmmaker. Her first feature is a poetic documentary essay, a scattered collage examining her Syrian father’s homeland. Her investigation is echoed by the words of other Syrians and her own memories. What makes up your dreams when your daily life has been a nightmare for so long? Through archival footage and interviews, she employs tact and the quiet power of symbolism to trace these memories: the ones left, the ones snatched away by force and the ones best left behind. Not to mention the power of cinema to populate, shape and transform our identities. (FNC)
