Presented in Arabic with translation in English, this short film shows women of Akkar, Lebanon, read selections from the writing which emerged from the Expressive Writing and Telling project. The music of the language is palpable as they speak movingly about difficult subjects and experiences. This is an output from the AHRC funded project: Expressive Writing and Telling in Crisis, Lebanon and is accompanied by the ebook of the same name, also available on ORDO:
