Reel Independent Film Extravaganza presents: Washington DC Premiere of "7 Days in Syria" featuring "Butterfly Hunter"
The conditions are extreme with constant shelling and bombardment, threat of sniper fire, and kidnappings. Only two weeks before the trip her friend, James Foley, was taken by three armed men and later executed. A few weeks after the trip, Steven Sotloff, who Janine speaks with while in Aleppo, is also captured and killed. Journalists are targets, and that much Janine knows. Yet, she and her crew put themselves in harm's way to bear witness and make sure the world knows about the suffering of the Syrian people. Along the way Janine meets a carpenter-turned-baker, a man considered to be a hero of Aleppo. His life is threatened daily by opposition forces, but he still makes bread to keep his neighbors alive. Then there's Waad, a Syrian teenager who was studying economics until the university was bombed. She videos injuries and deaths of soldiers and civilians, a very important task for posterity and war tribunals. We meet the young doctors who work tirelessly at an understaffed hospital, a construction worker turned gravedigger, and a young girl, the future of Syria, almost killed by a mortar that goes off while she sings at the marketplace. 7 Days in Syria is a documentary feature unlike any other, offering a rare glimpse at life during war and the incredible lengths journalists go to shine a light in the darkest places on earth.

"7 Days in Syria gives a window into the lives of families struggling to survive on the frontlines of the Syria conflict. Their courage and resilience shines through in impossible circumstances. I hope their stories will inspire greater efforts by all sides to end the bloodshed." -Angelina Jolie Pitt
