dc.description.abstractCOLOR CORRECTION is a short fiction film that addresses the dilemma of Syrian women refugees who fled their stricken country seeking asylum in neighbouring countries like Turkey, Jordon, Lebanon, and Egypt, where they were exploited into marriage through brokers and marriage-agencies. Set in Egypt, my films protagonist, Lama, gets married to a much older man through a broker. The story unfolds over the course of the first three days of their marriage, in the grooms apartment, where she keeps trying to avoid his questions about her past life and his insistence to have physical contact with her. After his attempt to kiss her violently, she runs away while he is asleep. In the lobby, she is surprised to see a piano, a gift from her husband. And the film ends with her torn between leaving the building or going back and giving her husband a second chance.
