CRIES FROM SYRIA is a searing, comprehensive account of a brutal five-year conflict from the inside out, drawing on hundreds of hours of war footage from Syrian activists and citizen journalists, as well as testimony from child protesters, leaders of the revolution, human rights defenders, ordinary citizens, and high-ranking army generals who defected from the government. Their collective stories are a cry for attention and help from a world that little understands their reality or agrees on what to do about it. A documentary by Evgeny Afineevsky, director of the Oscar-nominated film WINTER ON FIRE, CRIES FROM SYRIA premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.

I ask you my mother to remember me, prepare my bed every night, and remember my continuous smiles. And you my sister, tell my friend that I died from starvation. And you my brother, I remember when you and I were hungry. Oh angel of death, go ahead and catch my soul so that I can eat in paradise. Don't worry, family. I will eat for you in paradise as much as I can
