d. Andreas Dalsgaard, Obaidah Zytoon / 2016 / Denmark, Finland, Syria / 100 min. / Arabic / Czech subtitles

In March 2011 the Arab Spring reached Syria. Radio DJ Obaidah Zytoon and her friends join the street protests against the regime of Bashar al-Assad and decide to film the dramatic events. The atmosphere of excitement and hope for change was soon dashed by the regime’s brutal response and harsh repression. The country sinks into a bloody civil war. Obaidah and her friends witness the birth of the armed resistance, which, however, due to the incompetence of the international community soon falls victim to the rising tide of Islamic fanaticism. This deeply personal film captures not only Syria’s descent into the hell of an endless war, but also the fates of a group of friends who hoped for a better future and freedom.
