After two years of continuous frustrations, and the changing fortunes of the revolution and war in Kafranbel, civil activists are subjected to a fresh wave of persecution by their former friends. For extremist Islamist forces in the city their principles now provide a new reason to detain, execute, and torture them.
Hassan, Ayman and Raed are activists from Kafranbel, the revolutionary Syrian town. “Why do we film ourselves now” is a documentary film that interweaves their media and journalistic projects and our outside view of the town’s current reality.
This film has received the support of Bidayyat’s documentary grant 2015
