Arabic Film Series: Silvered Waters, Syria Self-Portrait @ ZSR Library Auditorium (Room 404)
Sep 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The documentary shows the destruction and atrocities of the civil war through a combination of eye-witness accounts shot on mobile phones and posted to the internet, and footage shot by one of the directors during the siege of Homs.  It captures the utter hopelessness of what’s going on in the world today, with a touch of a slim hope that cinema can help.
