Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and Studio Kawakeb cordially invite you to Documentarist’s 9th Which Human Rights? Film Festival to be held in Istanbul between 13-17 December 2017 (TR).
We are pleased to welcome you to the screening of a short animated film called “Sorry I Drowned” as part of Where’s Our Home? section of the festival focusing on the stories of displacement, migration and exile around the world.
On Sunday, December 17, at 5 pm (17:00) Yazan Al-Saadi from MSF Beirut and David Habchy from Studio Kawakeb will join us for the discussion session after the screening and answer participants’ questions in Aynalı Geçit, Beyoğlu, Istanbul.
This 7-minute animated film “Sorry I Drowned”, created by the Beirut-based Studio Kawakeb and MSF, is inspired by a letter allegedly found on the body of someone who drowned in the Mediterranean Sea at a time when the world had catastrophically failed millions of people fleeing war, persecution and despair.
How far would you go for a safe, dignified life? What reception would you expect? #SorryIDrowned
