Artists and film makers present very personal reflections on the current situation in Syria. Far from the sensationalism of international media, each of the films and videos of the program is a statement for humanity in the face of violence. Some works speak of the lost dreams of the early days of the Syrian uprising, some tells stories of day-to-day struggles and the absurdity of life in no-go zones and others let through a sparkle of hope, despite it all.
