Storyline

In Syria, everyday, YouTubers film then die; others kill then film. In Paris, driven by my inexhaustible love for Syria, I find that I can only film the sky and edit the footage posted. From within the tension between my estrangement in France and the revolution, an encounter happened. A young Kurdish woman from Homs began to chat with me, asking: 'If your camera were here, in Homs, what would you be filming?'. Silvered Water is the story of that encounter. Written by Production

Firsthand video accounts of the violence in Syria filmed by activists in the city of Homs.
15 April 2017 | by internetfreieminutenSee all my reviews

"Silvered Water, Syria Self-Portrait" is a Syrian documentary film about the Syrian Civil War. The collaboration between exiled Syrian filmmaker Ossama Mohammed and young Kurdish activist Wiam Simav Bedirxan distills footage from "1,001 Syrians" and documents the destruction and atrocities of the civil war through a combination of eye-witness accounts shot on mobile phones and posted to the internet, and footage shot by Bedirxan during the siege of Homs. Must see.
