In the documentary Privacy of Wounds, a Syrian prison cell is reconstructed. Here, three former Syrian refugees Hasan, Mazen and Khaldoon is to spend three days while conversing and reflecting upon their experiences. With nothing but unmanned cameras present, the three of them open up about their experiences of the time they spent in Syrian prison and the horrific experiences they have had in a particularly intimate, vulnerable and authentic manner. By letting the men together reflect on their experiences, director Dalia Kury provides a unique understanding of the experiences they have endured, and thus also a hard hitting testimony of the human consequences of the war in Syria.
UpNorth-produced Privacy of Wounds premiered at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA), where it participated in the festival’s competition program. It was also nominated for the Dragon Award for Best Nordic Documentary at the Gothenburg Film Festival.
