Defend Press Freedom

In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.

The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.

Thank you!

Thank you for confidence in The Media Line.

‘A Syrian Love Story’ – Q&A with Sean McAllister

‘A Syrian Love Story’ – Q&A with Sean McAllister

Date and time: Tuesday, June 16, 2020, 7 to 8:30 pm British Summer Time (UTC+1)

Register here.

Internationally renowned director Sean McAllister joins Hull Help for Refugees for a Q&A on his award-winning film, A Syrian Love Story.

Created over a period of five years, the film is a moving and intimate documentary of the lives of Raghda, Amer and their sons in Syria, beginning at a time when Raghda, the mother is in prison. It documents the family’s story during the Syrian uprising, starting with 4-year-old Bob asking his mother on the phone when she is coming home from jail.

Having full access to some of Raghda and Amer’s very distressing conversations, Sean also focuses on their disintegrating relationship. Presented against the backdrop of the atrocities of war, this gives us an understanding of the stresses on a family living under constant threat in a war zone.

Ticket holders will gain access to watch A Syrian Love Story through Vimeo for 48 hours before the event.
