De Ontmoeting - Back

Director: Yazan Rabee
A pursuit, footsteps, a house that runs off. The universal nightmare of many a refugee. This empathic documentary shows what it is like to be confronted in the dead of night with mortal fear, trauma and displacement.
Through the eyes of director Yazan Rabee, who fled from Syria himself, we experience his worst nightmare. He runs through the deserted streets of his former town, the secret service close on his heels. Where has he ended up and how will he ever find a safe place again? Incorporating archive footage and dramatized scenes, Rabee asks the question in this documentary where his fear of the regime started. And what does extreme insecurity do to a person?
