This is a side of war you don't see. Red Lines tells the remarkable story of Razan and Mouaz. Two Syrian activists from vastly different walks of life, thrown together by the circumstances of war. Razan, a 26 year old woman from a wealthy Syrian family is the unlikely head of a smuggling operation sending aid and weapons to the front lines through Turkey. Contrastingly, Mouaz was born dirt-poor in a Damascus Palestinian refugee camp but grew up in America, becoming the de facto liaison between the Free Syrian Army and US government.

The obstacles are overwhelming: a spiralling humanitarian crisis and the emerging dominance of anti-Western extremists like ISIS. Going beyond the gritty YouTube videos and news reports filmmakers Andrea Kalin and Oliver Lukacs take us into the centre of the conflict. Red Lines highlights the resilience of the Syrian people and the challenge to keep hope alive in the face of intolerable violence and tragic recent events across the region.
