Hanoi-Screening of “Kahara Has no Walls”
Mar 20, 7 pm, The Hanoi Bicycle Collective, 44, lane 31 Xuan Dieu Street
Yemen joined in the protests immediately after the start of the Arab Spring. Unlike Egypt and Tunisia, however, the country’s authoritarian regime did not collapse but instead responded with violence. Consequently, the protests were followed by what, in effect, was a civil war that remains unresolved. The crucial date was 18 March, when a demonstration called the Friday of Dignity (Juma’at El-Karama) was held.
Plainclothes snipers blocked the street with a wall and fired into the crowd from behind this barrier and surrounding roofs. Fifty-three people died and up to a thousand were injured. Three young cameramen recorded the course of events on that day from the heart of the ill-fated demonstration. This documentary shows the brutality of the crackdown from a close proximity. This eloquent visual testimony is complemented by commentaries and interviews with survivors. Besides the shocking violence, the film also reveals the desperate determination of the civilians who literally put their own bodies on the line to take a stand against the bullets. The violence only consolidated their determination to protect human dignity and precipitate a broad wave of solidarity with the protesters throughout Yemen.
