Syrian journalist, writer and documentary filmmaker Ali Al-Ibrahim has survived both Assad’s prisons and ISIS captivity. He managed to leave Syria for Turkey, late 2015, documenting the escape with hidden cameras and a cell phone. He is now safe and established as ICORN writer-in-residence in Sweden, and “One day in Aleppo” is his new documentary premiering at a Swiss film festival in April 2017.
In Lillehammer, Al-Ibrahim will show his film, and talk with renowned Norwegian writer and journalist Åsne Seierstad about the art of reporting, and the challenges of telling the truth about Syria, from inside and from outside.
