Ossama Mohammed & Wiam Simav Bedirxan’s graphic account of the horrors of the Syrian conflict, filmed by citizens trapped within it. Preceded by a series of short films from Syria
''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 on YouTube. From within the tension between my estrangement in France and the revolution, an encounter happened. A young Kurdish 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.''
