Pera Film in collaboration with the Friedrich-Ebert Foundation and the Goethe-Institut Istanbul is screening the documentary In The Dark Times. The documentary features Syrian artists struggling to build up a new cultural identity in exile. The film explores these artists' impressive productions in film, music, dance and theatre in Istanbul and Amman as a rising independent Syrian vision in search of freedom and recognition.
