Najah, Tima, Rania, Fatima and Fida meet in March 2021 for an artists’ residency in the mountains outside Beirut, coming together to create an original piece of theatre. As the country grapples with collapse, they weave together a story inspired by their experiences as women fighting against the odds for their rights.

TILKA won Best Local Documentary at the Lebanese Independent Film Festival and premiered in the UK at Cambridge Film Festival.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with theatremaker Lama Amine and film producer Sawsan Asfari, moderated by writer Yasmin El-Rifae.
