Looking for the man with the camera

Boutheyna Bouslama

2018 / 76 minutes / Production : 24 images - Close Up (Switzerland)

Looking for the man with the camera is a journey that takes the narrator from Geneva to the Syrian border, relentlessly looking for her childhood friend, a missing Syrian media activist. During the three years search we witness different stages of hope, fear and despair, where the search of a beloved one transcends the political and military chaos.

Through the narrator’s and her friend’s involvement in film making, it is a self reflective questioning of war image and its role for memory and as a witness against war crimes.
