Love Boat

Screening of the Documentary Love Boat – 2015 – as an Istanbul Premiere


Talk with Director Nawar Bulbul, Syria-France


At Salt Galata, September 19, 6:30 pm


Moderator: Evrim Hikmet Öğüt

The Film is showing the experience of famous Actor and Director Nawar Bulbul working with inexperienced actors in Jordan’s Capital Amman on a theatre drama featuring the Syrian tragedy. In the play Six Syrian actors with stories to tell are huddled in a small vessel headed for Europe on a “Love Boat”- journey to escape the conflict that has ravaged their homeland. Iman, one of the two women, plays a teenager hit by shrapnel in the southern province of Daraa who had a leg amputated. Haya, a 25-year-old, created a character that spent 227 days in regime jails where she was raped daily, rendering homage to the many Syrian women who lived such a nightmare. The vessel, a prop mounted on a stage, is the centerpiece of a one-act tragicomedy to celebrate life and break what its director calls the “three biggest taboos in Arab society: religion, sex and politics.” (30 Minutes)
