Disappointing propaganda
22 August 2019 | by grandcirqueSee all my reviews

In this "documentary" a girl talks about her friends killed by the Syrian army. Problem is, the brother of a victim (Amin Nakrour) wrote on his facebook page that this girl is a complete unknown in their circle of friends, who anyway were killed by terrorists and not by the army, and he also affirms that in any case the family never gave their permission to use name and photo of the deceased, which were used without their knowledge. Enough to disregard this video production as a bona fide documentary..
