Issa Touma is a self-taught photographer & film director based in Aleppo. In 2012, shortly after the outbreak of the Syrian civil war, Touma’s organization Le Pont, initiated Art Camping for Syrian refugees and citizens of Aleppo. This unique collaborative project, whose participants come from different religious and ethnic backgrounds, attempts to foster resistance to political and religious radicalism through artistic interventions and cultural dialogue.


“9 Days: From My Window in Aleppo” was awarded Best Short Film by the European Film Awards; Best Short Film at the London Film Festival and the Tribute Award at the International Short Film Festival in New York.

The short film will be screened, followed by a Q & A with Touma.
