“Jalila” documentary by Adnan Jetto

“Jalila” a short documentary about Syrian women, particularly since the beginning of and during the Revolution.
It could be just another film about a woman, or a film about “the woman”, the ones we would see in our daily lives.
Jalila goes beyond depicting Syrian women involved in the uprising but rather brings a different perspective on women in a crisis or a war situation.
Jalila is not about a comrade fighting on the frontline, nor about a woman grieving over her martyr son, It’s about women standing against injustice. It’s about a woman who overcame rape and rose up to prevent it.
A woman who is dauntless and powerful but yet tender and beautiful.
This preserved identity of being a woman in everything she does, whether smelling a flower or fighting in a battle field, is what the film about.
Jalila is not a character in the film, Jalila is every woman in the film.
