Storyline

In 2011, Syria's Bashar al-Assad answered his nation's demands for freedom by launching a brutal war against his own people. While the U.S. drew red lines for intervention, Assad ramped up the attacks, starving and killing civilians and children, including the use of chemical weapons, leveling cities, targeting journalists and blocking humanitarian aid to millions of victims. Abandoned by the outside world, individual activists stepped in to fill the roles of banned journalists, international aid agencies and feckless foreign governments. Red Lines tells the story of two such activists, who despite overwhelming obstacles, attempt to establish democratic enclaves in their devastated homeland. Written by Anonymous

This film will move you to action
28 October 2015 | by bethanybe-07448See all my reviews

The thing that I find so compelling about independent media is that it tells the stories of many people whose voices would otherwise go unheard.

Seeing a film like Red Lines pulls you close to the people and places in question and makes you want to get involved. At least it did for me. That is what makes this a powerful documentary.

The two main subjects are young and relatable to the millennial generation and their efforts to help establish a better Syria will challenge viewers to question their own role in this very real and complex ongoing conflict. Red Lines changed my mind-- about how I feel about the U.S.' role in the crisis, about who can be an activist, and about how the lives of others I don't even know in a country to which I have never been will deeply affect my own.

I believe this film is a must-see for everyone because it sheds a powerful light on the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time which is still going on today. It is also a beautiful film in its own right and I found that the graphics, music, editing and camera work made the film even more meaningful.

Red Lines is a bold film. Very few have impacted me as greatly.
