Hamid Sulaiman ¼ 4 review
éé par une militante pacifiue Yasmine dans une ville imaginaire semblable à beaucoup de petites villes de province syriennes Dans cet hôpital cohabitent avec Yasmine une dizaine de personnages malades et soignants reflétant la diversité de la société syrienne un kurde un alaouite une journaliste franco syrienne des membres de l'Armée libre et un islamiste radical Leurs relations vont évoluer en fonction des événements Engagement politiue trahi Freedom Hospital is a mix of fact and fiction based around an underground Syrian hospital which tends to injured rebels At the start of the book it feels like the rebels wanted a peaceful solution to the country's problems As time goes on and the death toll climbs they are turned to violence too This leaves a space for extremists to recruit those who feel failed by both sides and we see how Isis tried to take advantage of the situationAs well as these three factions of course there are those who just want to get on with their lives along with their human rights so uashed by Assad The daily death count printed at the top of the pages is a saddenign reminder of the senseless loss of the conflictAssad's regime is propped up by foreign weapons and throughout the pages the tanks planes and artillery are tagged by who provided what a lot from Russia but tother countries aren't innocent eitherIf you're uite well informed of the Syria situation I'm not sure reading this will add much but it serves as a good introduction It's not an intensely personal approach as Hamid has used anecdotes from many of his friends who stayed behind rather than writing an account of his own experienceI'm not a huge fan of the artwork but its sparseness does fit with the subject matter here
characters Freedom Hospital
Sons retournements d'alliance et l'horreur de la guerre sont au cœur de l'histoire de ce groupe d'individus pantins de l'histoire pris dans une tourmente dont les enjeux les dépassent totalement À travers ce terrible récit mis en scène de façon expressionniste avec de très forts contrastes de lumière ui noient les hommes et la ville sous un déluge d'ombres et de lumière Hamid Sulaiman pousse un cri de rage contre la guerre pour l'amour et la pai It is hard to find the right words to say about this book The war in Syria is atrocious and abominable and we need to know about it I am not going to say that in face of war only non fictional writing is justified No uite the contrary some of the greatest pieces of art are dealing with human suffering in war times Guernica Im Westen nichts Neues Apocalypse Now etc etc Freedom Hospital is a legitimate personal expression of an artist about the Syrian civil war Yet I doubt that it is either useful for understanding it better or a great piece of art And the only way for me to judge this book is by taking it as a piece of artMuch of my depreciation of this book is a problem I have with the whole genre graphic novels and comics I can't stand trivial text If this genre is to be a compound of two diverse arts the art of literature and the art of drawing then I expect the artists of this genre to try to excel in both of these involved arts And the conversation text in this book is commonplace in an embarrassing way trivial artless below mediocre simply bad Now if the pictures were great they might save some of the negative impression I had from the book And I must admit that unlike the text the pictures do attempt at being art It can arouse an impression of dark times in a dark place Nothing unexpected in view of the topic appropriate But why are the characters so flat so indistinguishable? This doesn't make sense as the dramatis personae in the beginning of the book and the development of the story treats the characters clearly as individuals as distinguishable And the same is true for the locations Undamaged houses and rubble are hardly distinguishable either I do believe that the author is mourning over the loss of his country Syria and he is clearly in favor of the political anti Assad opposition not in favor of the islamist opposition though but he treats the country without love when he draws itAll in all this seems to be a rambling book to me I need to get my information and my art about the tragedy of Syria from somewhere else Any suggestions?

Freedom Hospital est la première bande dessinée de Hamid Sulaiman artiste plasticien syrien ui a fui son pays en 2011 et trouvé refuge en France après une année dans la clandestinité Sulaiman s'inspire d'histoires vécues par des personnes de son entourage pour raconter les débuts de la guerre en Syrie des premières manifestations pacifiues de 2011 jusu'aux prémices de Daech Son récit est centré sur le Freedom Hospital un hôpital clandestin cr This is the kind of book I always feel bad about not liking better It's important subject matter about real lives being destroyed or sent into upheaval And yet all I do is wonder why the author didn't provide context for the events and characters who wander through his tale and I end up spending too much time focused on the inadeuacies of the story and art Some people live some people die and this story does not do much to make me care about any of them It doesn't help that this is a fictionalized account of the Syrian Civil War and so I have to wonder how much license is being taken Also there is a constant refrain of x number of days pass and y number of people die It's a horrifying reminder of the toll but it also serves to start causing a detachment and makes me think of that awful old Stalin uote The death of one man is a tragedy the death of millions is a statistic It's staggering to think how this story is set like five or six years ago and how the death and suffering has just continued unabated in the interim But again the creator doesn't manage to bring this home to me between the covers of his bookAnd no the author having a character acknowledge the cheesiness of an amnesia storyline in the script does not then make the amnesia storyline not cheesyThe art is full of big black blotches that at times seem less like illustrations and like Rorschach test inkblots Characters are drawn in an almost impressionistic style with a minimum of lines so they are sometimes difficult to tell apart Action is sometimes difficult to followI was hoping for something that would educate and move me but instead I'm left wishing I had read something else
