Broken Vases

a poetic documentary film about freeing yourself from taboos


Broken Vases (Gebroken Vazen) is a short documentary film about Middle East taboos, and how to
deal with these taboos when one leaves the region. During her coming of age a woman grows up in a
society that will change her dramatically. The film sheds light on a different behaviour for a woman who
was living as a normal Arab woman and whose life suddenly changes because of war. Moving to the
other side of the world as a refugee, she begins to understand that societies can be very different.
