Then there is banging on the door...This powerful study of life in Damascus won the Audience Award at Berlinale. Warning: contains a depiction of sexual assault. Preceded by the short: Dancing with Monsters    

2016   Isabella Freilinger   10min Germany   subtitles   Short  Drama
How do we react to a world of violence and brutality? Do we become victims or perpetrators ourselves?
