Through Our Eyes

Free screening and Scottish premier! A documentary about Syrian refugees by Edinburgh-based award-winning filmmaker Samir Mehanović is being premiered in Scotland by Duns Film Club at the Volunteer Hall.

The film goes well beyond ordinary documentary. Mehanović — himself a Muslim refugee who fled to the UK from the Bosnian War of the 1990s — presents a wholly fresh and personal insight into the human catastrophe of the Syrian conflict. In sequences filmed over four years, he allows us to experience the lives of refugee families through their own eyes; and the resulting film offers vivid testimony to the tragic consequences of war. He makes particular use of images alongside music written and performed by refugees, to give an emotional insight that the Western media often fails to convey. Run time 70 minutes.

Duns Film Club reserves the right to replace any film or change the screening date within the programme if deemed necessary.

Licensing conditions allow Duns Film Club to promote the titles of its films only within the Volunteer Hall and to members of the Club and/or A Heart for Duns. Details of film shows will be given on this website and in the monthly Volunteer Hall Events email, advertised by posters in Duns and announced at the monthly Community Cinema screenings.
