Focus Bidayyat : New Beginnings

Douma Underground Tim Alsiofi

With barrel bombs falling on Ghouta, the Eastern suburbs of Damascus, civilians seek shelter in their basements. The filmmaker is one of them. Holding on to his camera, he attempts to film what cannot not be expressed in words. (WR)

This film is presented as part of the Focus Bidayyat : New Beginnings, presented in collaboration with World Records, and with the support of Critical Media Lab McGill and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
