Silvered Water, Syria Self-Portrait

Silvered Water, Syria Self-Portrait

A Feature film by Ossama Mohammed, Wiam Simav Bedirxan

Produced by Les Films d'Ici

Release in France : 17/12/2014


    In Syria, YouTubers film and die every day, while others kill and film.
    In Paris, I can only film the sky and show these images on YouTube, driven by my unshakeable love for Syria.
    An encounter arose from the tension created by my distance, my country, and the revolution. A young Kurdish filmmaker from Homs "chatted" with me: "If your camera was here in Homs, what would you film?"
    This film is the story of our exchange.
