Join us at Bar Laika on Thursday, November 21, at 9pm for a screening of Ayman Nahle’s Now: End of Season.

Ayman Nahle, Now: End of Season, 20:00, 2015
Now: End of Season is a documentary détournement on the state of the Syrian crisis. The film pictures the everyday entanglement of refugees, tourists, and passersby in the Turkish seaport town of Izmir, where a sense of limbo and standstill looms as illegalized migrants await departure to the unknown. The soundtrack to the film is from a phone call by Hafez al-Assad to Ronald Reagan made some thirty years earlier. A caller on hold, an impatient translator… In Nahle’s words, “more confused than ever, the world is on the edge, showing the disoriented face of a smiling disaster.”

Ayman Nahle is a filmmaker living and working in Beirut.
