Bahrain, the Forbidden Country
FPA at the Commonwealth Club
Directors: Stephanie Lamorre
Producers: Luc Hermann
Language: French with English subtitles and voice-over
Three destinies, three perspectives from the forgotten country of the Arab Revolution. Bahrain, ruled by the Al Khalifa royal family, is the country that has been forgotten by the West. In the last year the repression has caused 60 deaths in a country of 600,000 people.
For one month, Stephanie Lamorre secretly filmed the violently suppressed demonstrations in the heart of the besieged districts. She tells the story of her immersion through the perspective of three women.
Followed by a Q&A session with the film's producer, Luc Hermann, on secret filming in dangerous places.
