Syrian

When the Arab Spring reached Syria in March 2011, Obaidah Zytoon (a radio DJ) and her friends decided to join the street protests against the Assad regime and film the dramatic events. The regime’s brutal response and harsh repression crushed the atmosphere of excitement and any hope for change, leading the country instead into a bloody civil war. Obaidah and her friends witnessed the birth of the armed resistance, which, due to the incompetence of the international community, soon fell victim to the rising tide of extremism. A deeply personal road movie, it captures the fate of Syria through the intimate lens of a small circle of friends.
