Engaging with the world
SYRIA , Lebanon
| 95 minutes | 2016
In Aleppo, filmmaker and Al Jazeera/BBC journalist Orwa Al Mokdad turns his lens on the reality of war, conflict and the disillusionment of the combatants. On the frontline, accompanying an opposition brigade or capturing the day-to-day of pacifist activists, Al Mokdad chronicles the unfolding of the tragedy in Syria. Months pass and each protagonist questions the meaning of the conflict that just won’t end. A kaleidoscope of a film reflecting the gap between the ideals fuelling the uprising and the realities on the ground.IN COMPETITION
