  • Arab Spring Aftermath and Refugee Crisis - How Do We Tell This Story? 19.10.2018

     

    In Conversation with Director Majdi-Bou Matar - AMAL and confronting the Refugee Crisis

    In my freshman year studying music at university, I brought a piano piece I thought I had polished to my studio instructor. After listening to me perform silently, she smiled, sat down on the piano, and proceeded to interpret the music in a way I never realized was possible.

    My conversation with AMAL director Majdi Bou-Matar was reminiscent of that freshman experience.
