Document Film Festival: Purple Sea Q&A
Join us for a live Q&A with Amel Alzakout, co-director of Purple Sea.


Made from images filmed by the Syrian artist Amel Alzakout after the boat on which she was fleeing Syria sank off the coast of Lesbos, Purple Sea reports on the moment in which the co-director and the other passengers are floating in the sea in their life jackets, waiting to be rescued. 

Co-authored with filmmaker Khaled Abdulwahed, Alzakout poignantly narrates her perilous journey, and her poetic commentary feeds into a confrontational psychological reflection on this moment of personal crisis and collective tragedy.
