Masters of survival: Sarah

  • Jackman Hall AGO 317 Dundas Street West Toronto, ON, M5T 1G4 Canada (map)

Boryana Ivanova | 2018 | 4m

(2 of 3)

In this short animation series, director Boryana Ivanova paints intimate portraits of Syrian men and women who not only survive but also prevail the overwhelming situations confronting them.

In this second portrait, once a swimming champion in Syria, Sarah now finds herself making an escape on a broken boat in the middle of the Mediterranean. Facing what feels like the most important race of her life, Sarah competes for new stakes: her life, and that of her sister’s and everyone aboard.
