rated for 0 + years DOCUMENTARY The story of a siege: for two years during the Syrian civil war, the director was trapped in Homs and kept a film diary of his painful experiences.
Sulaiman Tadmory is 23 when Assad’s army surrounds the old town of Homs overnight. When he wakes up the next morning, he is in a besieged city. He soon finds out what that means: no food, no medicine, his family just a few hundred metres away but unreachable. With his camera, Tadmory documents a day-to-day existence that gets steadily more and more unbearable – and shows how a fear of dying becomes in wartime a fear of surviving.
