The Blue Inmates

About the Film

The film follows inmates from Roumieh Prison in Lebanon as they produce a play about their fellow prisoners who suffer from mental illness and are thus filed under “mad and possessed”by the penal code and forgotten behind bars for life.
Turning her lens to a very significant ongoing injustice in The Blue Inmates, director Zeina Daccache, who has dedicated her life to defending the rights of inmates, takes another significant step towards making life in Lebanon fairer. Depicting that which is not seen with her camera, the director delivers a strong documentary that challenges injustice.

⚠️ The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the participation of the filmmakers.
