Public release of the movie "Scheherazade's Diary" in Lebanese Cinemas

Filmed throughout a ten-month drama therapy/theatre project
set up in 2012 in Baabda prison by Zeina Daccache, this gripping
and tragicomic documentary features women inmates who
challenge societies that oppress women. The film journeys
into the quotidian of prison life and follows these “murderers
of husbands, adulterers and drug felons” storytellers as they
rehearse for the show, and share testimonials of domestic
violence, forlorn romance and deprivation of motherhood.
Through their artistic journey, the women inmates hold up a
mirror to Lebanese society, implicating us all in oppression that
often leads to crime.
