A selection of Short films, produced by Bidayyat, at the Winterthur short film festival, Switzerland.
This special program is entitled: The Syrian Revolution Will not be televised.
Description: We might think that we’ve seen almost all kinds of images describing Syria and showing war, evil, suffering, destruction, and tears. We might think this is Syria. Yet too often, this is not a correct image, but just an image. There are things belonging to everyday life that won’t make the headlines, but that will give a better and wider picture. Quoting Gil Scott-Heron’s song, which became a slogan against the mass media, the programme gives voice to the real revolution – the one brought about through cinema, by the ordinary Syrian citizen.
