Bab al-Makam

Directed by Mohamed Malas
Syrian Arab Republic, Tunisia, 2005


In the film, Amine is a Syrian woman whose passion for music becomes her fall. In traditional Islamic society, a respectable woman equals a silent woman – but Amine refuses to abide by such rules. Rather than live in dishonor, her own family decides to do away with her.
