Dance in Palmyra

In 2016 Roozbeh Kaboly made an 18-minutes long reportage about Ahmad Joudeh's fight to live as a dancer in Syria, a country devastated by a civil war.

In this documentary, Ahmad Joudeh dances for the souls of those who lost their lives in the ruin of Yarmouk Camp, his home town, and in the Roman Theatre of Palmyra.

The reportage was first broadcast on 6 August 2016 in a  news programme “Nieuwsuur” of a Dutch National TV channel. Since, the documentary has been shown in many countries, including UK and France.
