Default "Karama Has No Walls"

Nominated for 'Best Documentary Short' Oscar............ about Yemen's 'day of dignity'........... trailer on the website:

That's all.

"One binding factor in the conversation was the use of the name "Arab Spring" - at least until Maryam Al Khawaja, the Bahraini human rights campaigner, explained that she didn't like it at all: "Firstly it ignores all the non-Arabs in the region who have been involved and affected; secondly the use of the word 'spring' beautifies the process and we shouldn't do that."

Were anyone foolish enough to harbour romantic notions about the realities of conflict, a later screening of the Yemeni-Scottish director Sara Ishaq's Karama Has No Walls will have been more than enough to dispel them. Assembled from footage shot by Ishaq and two young filmmakers from Sanaa, this documentary chronicles the events of Juma'at El-Karama, or the Friday of Dignity. On March 18, 2011, snipers loyal to the then-president Ali Abdullah Saleh opened fire on a group of unarmed protesters in the capital, killing 53 and injuring a thousand more. Filmed amid barrages of gunfire and in hospital wards piled with bodies, it sentimentalised nothing and deftly captured the bloody and brutal acts that eventually brought an end to Saleh's 33-year rule."
