The documentary film Cries from Syria offers a detailed, in-depth look into the brutal five-year conflict in Syria, using hundreds of hours of authentic footage of the war-torn country recorded by Syrian activists and journalists. The documentary also features accounts from protesting children, revolutionaries, human rights activists, civilians and high-ranking army officials who defected from Asad’s government. Their collective stories are a cry for help and call to action around the world, where few truly understand their situation and fail to agree on a solution to this crisis.Cries from Syria, from Russian director Jevgenij Afinejevsky, who directed the Oscar-nominated film Winter on Fire, premiered in 2017 at the Sundance film festival.
