Still from film

7pm & 8.15pm. £5. 

In the summer of 2014 Umama Hamido travelled from her city Beirut to the Bekaa Valley, visiting villages on the borders of Lebanon and Syria. She was drawn by the beauty of the people and a way of life much removed from the one she was accustomed to in the capital city. This is a world of local tribes, rebel fighters, and people who have fled from the ongoing civil war in the neighbouring country.

HIND documents a landscape and the daily life of a people who inhabit it. In this cinematic performance, Umama takes the audience on a journey through sound and image, sharing film footage which captures both the serenity and beauty of this environment and the inhabitants but also a reality of tension, poverty, fear and imminent danger.

HIND is supported by BANNER, an Artsadmin initiative which presents compelling work by artists who have recently graduated from art school. This production was made possible through Al-Mawred al Thaqafy – Culture Resource’s Production Awards Program
