Haunted

Nominated by FIDMarseille

Syria. Among the ravages of war, there is also this more discreet yet vital phenomenon: exile. Leave, stay? A question Liwaa Jazji tackles. The place of this tearing apart of the self to the self will be the house as a physical space, as a place of memory of gestures and bodies, as the receptacle of our familiar objects.
