Short Movie Reflects Brutal Torture Perpetrated in Syrian Jails

A short film made by a Palestinian family that was deported from Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, in Damascus, to France has unveiled the torture tactics pursued behind Syria’s prison bars. The film came onboard Ciné Palestine Festival, held in Toulouse in mid-March.

Entitled “Ana Madakhalni”, an Arabic expression that literally means I am innocent, the movie depicts the agony inflicted on detainees in Syrian state dungeons, where hundreds have died under torture. The scenario was written by Palestinian writer Abu Salma Khalil, who also played the role of a detainee. The director of the film is 16-year-old Adam Khalil. The daughter Salma and her friend Farah Adana Li figure in the movie as Abu Salma’s daughters. Journalist Fidaa AlHattab played the role of the mother.

The movie tells the story of a Palestinian family from Yarmouk Camp who lived happily at their home until the father, who works as a painter, was arrested and sent to jail. While in custody, the family’s breadwinner undergoes harsh psycho-physical torture. The family home is emptied and laughter is no longer heard in the abandoned building.

The move garnered a round of warm applauses from French and Arab audiences and critics and it has been widely covered by local and international mass media.
