The War Show

Andreas Dalsgaard, Obaidah Zytoon
 
[T]he film is a highly personal yet universally affecting compilation focusing on Zytoon, her friends, and the footage they shot between 2011 and 2013, from the euphoria of protest to complete despair in the face of the unthinkable.
 
(…) The War Show captures the scope of the tragedy while making the participants real — unlike the largely anonymous victims seen on news reports, here Zytoon and her friends project a humanity that carries over even into the unnamed men revealing their torture scars for the camera.

The War Show is a captivating, moving document of this troubled region. (…) It’s an exceptional look at a Syrian generation that’s being obliterated by the ongoing civil war.
 
As both testimony and memorial, The War Show provides a voice for those no longer with us, showcasing that spark of optimism that’s still fostering in Syria while darker forces move in to co-opt the movement.

Whether detailing her own run-ins with ruling forces or turning the lens towards others, the camera can’t be ignored, and nor can its impact.
