Sirens tells the story of Beirut based musicians Lilas and Shery and their band Slave to Sorens.
With their brand of thrash, the group are the Middle East’s first all-women metal band, and Rita Baghdadi’s film tells the story of the women’s friendship and the band all against the backdrop of a conservative country undergoing political turmoil.
A powerful film, which bursts an energy that reflects the subject matter, Sirens is not just a film for fans of music, but for all who are interested in the lives and experiences of women, female relationships, creativity and the rebellion.
