Scheherazade's Diary trailer : Filmed during and after a 10-month drama therapy/theatre project set up in 2012 by director Zeina Daccache, this gripping and tragi-comic documentary features women inmates who challenge societies that oppress women. Through their unprecedented theatre initiative, entitled Scheherazade in Baabda, these “murderers of husbands, adulterers and drug felons” reveal their stories – tales of domestic violence, traumatic childhoods, failed marriages, forlorn romances and deprivation of motherhood. The women of Baabda Prison share their personal stories and in doing so, hold up a mirror on Lebanese society.
