Movie Recounting Syrian Prison Experiences Nominated for British Prize

Lawrence Abu Hamdan’s short movie, which consists of interviews with former detainees at a high-security prison near Damascus in Syria, has been nominated for Britain's Turner Prize for contemporary art.

Hamdan used sound installations to help six survivors remember their experiences in prison “to map the unknown architecture of the prison and to understand what happened there,” the judges said.

The prize will be announced on December 3.
