Syria, France, 2014, 92 minutes
Directors: Ossama Mohammed & Wiam Simav Bedirxan
From his forced exile in France, filmmaker Ossama Mohammad strikes an unlikely online collaboration with Kurdish activist Simav Bedirxan, who makes a life endangering decision to smuggle a camera to the besieged city of Homs, Syria. Drawn from 21st century technology: YouTube videos of horrors in Syria, cell phone cameras with unfriendly aspect ratios and electronic sounds of Skype calls, the result of their collaboration is a masterpiece that stands witness to the power of cinema in the face of war.
Features graphic war footage that will shock the sensitivity of some viewers.
