As If We Were Catching a Cobra

As If We Were Catching a Cobra

Syria, France

Producers: Frederic Feraud, Hala Alabdalla

Production Company: Ramad Film, L’oeil Sauvage (France)

Project Logline:

In newspapers around the world, satirical cartoons make us laugh, cry and contemplate our world… they can provoke and upset us as well. They are also the best measure of a country’s freedom of expression.

Director's Quote:

What is it to be Arab? Is it a cultural identity, a virtual weapon or an indispensable refuge, a place to hide from danger? These are questions that challenge the mind of the citizen of an Arab nation, despite the “Arab-ness” of the education to which he is subjected.
