They are young, confrontational and they play in the thrash metal band "Slave to Sirens". And they are five women from Lebanon. The everyday life of the musicians is marked by constant conflicts and disappointed expectations on many different levels. SIRENS takes us into these multi-layered worlds of experience: from the inner turmoil in their own being to the overarching themes that arise from the regional conflicts of the Middle East. In contrast, a rousing self-confidence is transported, a never-ending energy that inspires us viewers with lasting enthusiasm.
Director's Biography:Emmy Award winner Rita Baghdadi was born on 23 January 1985 in Washington, DC (USA). She is a documentary film director, producer and cinematographer, her films are screened at renowned festivals worldwide.
