The Most Pretty Dudes
Spring Grant 2015 - Production Stage
Current project status: PRODUCTION
‘The Most Pretty Dudes’ is based on an audio recording of negotiations between two groups, one representing the Syrian regime, the other the Free Syrian Army, which took place in Homs in February, 2012. Both groups are trapped in the same building, both with the same desire: to get out of the building alive. The recording demonstrates how the negotiations began from a place of mistrust, as the leader of the regime soldiers asks the FSA leader to get in touch with a neutral outsider to guarantee the safety of all. In the end, the men reach an agreement whose terms mean that trusting in one another is the only way to survive, their word of honour the only guarantee of their true intentions.
