Humanity 2.0 Vessel
What is it about ?
The novel takes place in Syria, after the revolution of 2011 until the surrender of the rebels in Aleppo in 2016. It tells the eventful crossing of Jamal, from Damascus to Aleppo via Palmyra. Formerly a director recognized and appreciated by the public for his Shakespearean repertoire, Jamal lived for a few years in prison. Released by the Free Syrian Army in his last place of detention in Idlib, he then tries to find his daughter. But his memory and his aptitude for the production will betray him.
On the artistic side
What can the artist hope for when the tragic event takes the place of a theater? Will he be forced to play a role he did not want to play? Or, on the contrary, will he succeed in interpreting this other role for which a strange character seems destined him: Majd, met in prison, and who under the powerful spotlight of “Vessel Humanity 2.0” will guide him through a country in ruins?
