Queens of Syria - Yasmin Fedda

Directed by Yasmin Fedda, this film tells the story of fifty women from Syria, all forced into exile in Jordan, who came together to create and perform their own version of the Trojan Women, the Greek tragedy about the plight of women in war. A cross-cultural connection across millennia was found - women born in 20th century Syria discovered a mirror of their own experiences in the stories of other women, uprooted, enslaved and bereaved by the Trojan War.
