ZERO SILENCE screening in Glasgow
Scottish Premiere | Bicycle-powered indoor screening
The revolution starts here. Join us (and join in) at this exclusive underground screening of Zero Silence in The Glue Factory. Balanced, inspiring and beautifully filmed, Zero Silence presents portraits of six young people from Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon and Syria who have taken to the streets, the airwaves and the internet since the start of 2011 to fight for change in their societies. Female activist Lilia walks us through downtown Tunisia, sharing memories of the single act of protest that started all the others. In Egypt, journalists, musicians and artists cast light on the critical role of underground media in Mubarak’s fall. In Lebanon, we hear of a movement that is rising above religious divisions with the purpose of ending them. As the film points towards a new battle beginning to raging in Syria, it powerfully reminds us that political freedom must be the inheritance of this generation of Arab youth.
