The screening of Sirens: a trashmetal girlband from Lebanon. The film is part of the One World festival’s project Get your Audience!
“Beirut-based all-female thrash metal band Slave to Sirens is a sensation for Western audience. However, in their homeland, they are the enfants terribles. For many in Lebanon, the issue is not only the musical style, but also the musicians’ sexual orientation. In addition to the condemnations by the society and the turbulent political situation in the country, drama also creeps into the relationships within the band. The film is part of the One World festival’s project Get your Audience!
