This video diary (a documentary by Tinus Kramer) followed them in preparation of their new production When Farah Cries in 2016. When Leila was arrested, a group of officers stripped her naked and then made her wash their underwear. Then they ordered her to make coffee and to lie down on the coffee table while they drank it. I couldn’t believe this story. How can a group of officers all agree to such a vile act? When Farah Cries was published in the Another Europe book by ECF. You can read the play online.
