‘The Cave’ Filmmakers Offer Update of Director Feras Fayyad’s Visa Struggles

The two-time Oscar nominee was detained in Copenhagen by immigration police this week and handled with “unnecessary force.”
Feras Fayyad, the two-time Academy Award nominee behind Last Men in Aleppo and The Cave, has yet to be able to secure an extended U.S. visa — despite his recent Oscar nomination for best documentary and multiple other awards.

The Cave, distributed by National Geographic Documentary Films in the U.S., has earned the Syrian filmmaker universal acclaim, so has visa struggles have not gone unnoticed. This week alone, the TV Academy and the International Documentary Association were among the entertainment organizations that implored the State Department to grant Fayyad entry.

Still, efforts to get him to the U.S. have been unsuccessful. The Cave producer Sigrid Dyekjaer offered an update on his efforts during a Friday panel for The Cave at the Television Critics Association, saying that Fayyad had been detained by immigration police.

“Things escalated two nights ago when I got a phone call at 12.30 a.m,” said Dyekjaer. “Feras had been detained on his way into Copenhagen by immigration police. I rushed to the airport. Feras told me the police used unnecessary force in detaining him. The past month has been a lot for a man who has been imprisoned and tortured in Syria.”

Dyekjaer went on to say that Fayyad plans to go back to the U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen early next week to resume his efforts. She listed off a number of other entertainment organizations that have made petitions on his behalf.

Read the full statement below:

We were hoping that Feras Fayyad could be here with us today.

As has been widely reported, in December Feras was denied an extended U.S. visa by the U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen and has missed several industry events, including the IDA Awards and Cinema Eye Awards.

He has had quite the ordeal these past weeks.

While waiting on the U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen to grant him another appointment, Feras received news that his aunt’s house was bombed and his parents’ and childhood home was in the line of fire in Syria.

As the oldest of 10, he feels a great responsibility for his siblings and his parents. So, instead of continuing to wait on the embassy, Feras went to Turkey to be as close to his family as possible and help in any way he could.

The past few weeks for Feras have been filled with a lot of fear. A lot of anger. A lot of anxiety.

He remained in Turkey until two days ago, when we had positive indications the embassy was willing to revisit his case.

Feeling his family is out of immediate danger for now, Feras decided to return to Denmark.

However, things escalated two nights ago when I got a phone call at 12.30 a.m. Feras had been detained on his way into Copenhagen by immigration police.

I rushed to the airport. Feras told me the police used unnecessary force in detaining him. The past month has been a lot for a man who has been imprisoned and tortured in Syria, and whose family is under threat and has siblings spread all over Europe.

Feras was distraught, exhausted and felt discriminated against. The police eventually released him into my care.

After this ordeal and given there was no way to get here by today, Feras is instead spending the weekend with his 5-year-old daughter – who hasn’t seen him in over six weeks.

Our next step is to go back to the embassy early next week and try again for the necessary visa so he can come to the U.S.

National Geographic has been communicating with the U.S. State Department, and we have had an overwhelming show of support from the documentary community and entertainment industry at large, including:

• The Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences
• The Television Academy & The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences
• The Director’s Guild of America
• The International Documentary Association
• The Minister for Culture of Denmark
• The Danish Film Institute
• The association of Danish Film Directors

Feras is a filmmaker, but first and foremost he’s a Syrian. THE CAVE is a very personal film. It is dedicated to his seven sisters. To his daughter. To the unnamed women he witnessed being jailed and tortured in Syrian prisons because they’re women.

His voice is important and it deserves to be heard, now more than ever. After all, we are talking about a brilliant filmmaker who is now a two-time Academy Award nominee — and my dear friend.

Feras — and all of us — thank you all for your continued support.

AMLO: Cuidamos la catedral contra manifestantes de Frenaaa

El presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador reveló que el gobierno de la Ciudad de México no permitió el paso al Zócalo capitalino a los manifestantes del Frente Nacional Anti-AMLO (Frenaaa) porque había riesgos de provocación.

El mandatario fue cuestionado durante la conferencia matutina sobre el motivo por el cual no se les permitió llegar al Zócalo.

“Había riesgos de provocación, según información que me dieron, y sí queremos cuidarnos”, dijo el mandatario.

El riesgo, aclaró, era que se le hiciera daño a la Catedral Metropolitana, debido a que hay otras manifestaciones y había riesgo de provocaciones.

“Había otras manifestaciones y el cuidado de la Catedral…es cuidar que no haya enfrentamientos, confrontación, que sea pacífico todo”, dijo.

López Obrador afirmó que su gobierno garantizará el derecho a manifestarse de sus opositores y los invitó a solicitar que la revocación de mandato sea el 6 de junio, a la par de las elecciones federales , y no hasta 2022.

El mandatario llamó a los manifestantes a convocar a los mexicanos a votar en contra de los partidos que simpatizan con la transformación y apoyar a los partidos opositores, “los que quieren que continúe el antiguo régimen de corrupción, injusticia de privilegios”.

Además los invitó a organizarse y a que los dirigentes del movimiento se queden en el plantón con los manifestantes.

“Que se queden los dirigentes, que no se vayan a hoteles, porque yo caminé durante mucho tiempo, me quedaba en el campamento, ahí dormía en las casas de campaña”, recordó.

Resguardan a dos adolescentes por petición de sus padres; presentan problemas de comportamiento

Agentes de la Secretaría de Seguridad Pública Municipal realizaron el resguardo de dos niñas de 12 y 13 años que presentan problemas de comportamiento, a quienes por petición de sus padres se les canalizó a la oficina de trabajo social para que reciban atención integral mediante los programas de apoyo que ofrece la Dirección de Prevención Social de esta dependencia.

En la primera intervención, agentes municipales atendieron un llamado al número de emergencia 911, en donde los padres de una niña de 13 años, solicitaban apoyo para trasladarla a la oficina de Trabajo Social de la SSPM, ya que requerían ayuda del personal capacitado porque su hija presentaba problemas de conducta.

Motivo por el cual los oficiales se trasladaron hasta la vivienda ubicada en el cruce de las calles Senderos de Murcia y Senderos de las Zarzuelas, de la colonia Senderos de San Isidro, en donde la madre de la niña manifestó que teme por la integridad de su hija ya que últimamente ha mostrado un comportamiento muy agresivo, además de encontrarle en su red social conversaciones con un masculino de 21 años, con quien tenía pensado salir, por lo que los agentes procedieron a su resguardo.

En la segunda acción, se realizó el resguardo de una niña de 12 años, en un domicilio ubicado en el cruce de las calles Villa Verde y Villa Azul, del fraccionamiento Villas de Salvárcar, a quien por petición de sus padres se trasladó a la oficina de Trabajo Social para que reciba atención especializada y mejore su conducta, manifestando sus tutores que su hija se ha mostrado muy rebelde y que el día de ayer comenzó a agredirlos verbalmente luego de que no le dieron permiso de verse con un sujeto a quien conoció por la red social Facebook, con el que quiere irse a vivir, por lo que temen por su integridad.

Cabe mencionar que en ambos casos las niñas fueron canalizadas a la oficina de trabajo social en donde por medio de personal capacitado recibirán atención integral, trabajando de la mano con sus tutores para lograr un entorno familiar adecuado.
