WARM Presents: Syria - Snapshots of History in the Making + debate | Frontline Club London

Founded in 2010 by a group of Syrian filmmakers, Abounaddara anonymously releases weekly films on the web in order to avoid censorship. These weekly short films are a testimony of the fight for freedom in Syria. The film Syria: Snapshots of History in the Making is an intimate journey constructed from these short films.

The film alternates personal stories and poetic images, fragments of an unfinished story, in which the actors are ordinary Syrians. We meet an old taxi driver who insists on searching for a lost street while listening to Arab tango on the radio; a young woman who preferred elections over the revolution; and a deserter from the Free Syrian Army who now believes they are going in the wrong direction.

Abounaddara is one of the projects supported by WARM, an international foundation dedicated to war reporting, war art, as well as history and memories of war. Before the screening, WARM members will join founder and head of the organisation, Remy Ourdan and producer of Abounaddara Films Charif Kiwan to discuss how the depiction of conflicts has changed over the years.

Directed by Abounaddara Collective
Duration: 53′
Year: 2014
