Black Lines, The

Denmark, 2006 (MIFF 2007, Short & Taboo)

Director: Camilla Magid

Black Lines, The

Behind the walls of a Syrian hamman, friends Eman and Rima meet to bathe and share confidences. An intimate and occasionally disarming portrait emerges of two modern women actively engaged in defining their own aspirations and shaping a place for themselves in a society in transition.
