Rafaat Al Zakout, Christin Lüttich - Directors and producers

``Back in October 2011, Beirut was the hub for all those who wanted to know more about the Syrian uprising, but little were those genuinely interested and willing to support this change. Meeting Monique in October 2011 was fundamentally different from the previous encounters: her quiet and very attentive listening manner, the questions she asked and the curiosity she had towards our artistic work, ideas and self-understanding immediately made us feel at ease. To her, our satirical political puppet show ``TopGoon`` was not just another project to be advertised, but rather a joint belief in the power of change through free and independent expression, whether through arts or other forms. This joint belief has created a beautiful bond over the years, and a continuing and rich exchange and reflection about the changes that Syria and we as humans go through.”
