"Jalila" a short documentary about Syrian women, particularly since the beginning of and during the Revolution. It could be just another film about a woman, or a film about “the woman”, the ones we would see in our daily lives. Jalila goes beyond depicting Syrian women involved in the uprising but rather brings a different perspective on women in a crisis or a war situation. Jalila is not about a comrade fighting on the frontline, nor about a woman grieving over her martyr son, It’s about women standing against injustice. It's about a woman who overcame rape and rose up to prevent it. A woman who is dauntless and powerful but yet tender and beautiful. This preserved identity of being a woman in everything she does, whether smelling a flower or fighting in a battle field, is what the fil...
Following the recent events that took place in Syria, people all over the world used to see this country like it presented by media. I have been twice there and can assure you Syria is a wonderful land with its age-old traditions and unique culture. First, I came to Syria together with my friends in August 2010. That's exactly when I shot my first video about the place. Later Blake Whitman showed it on vimeo.com HD channel. The movie was warmly met and watched by a great number of people, what gave me an opportunity to take part in another project in Syria in February this year. It was a documentary about the country made in 20 days. I was DOP in a second unit. The video you see I made together with my friend from my Syrian shot here, at home. I wish people remembered Syria a great and ma...
The Arab spring, Benghazi, Gaddafi and Slayer are discussed with WE WIN OR WE DIE director Matthew Millan. Having spent a lot of time in North Africa and the Middle East, Millan discusses the factors that he saw that linked the Arab Spring, the bully politics of the region, and the music and talent of the neglected metal heads of these war zones and how they can connect with their counterparts in the West. Sean Stone presents Millan for this Buzzsaw interview. GUEST BIO: Matthew Millan boasts a truly unconventional background for a filmmaker. He graduated from UCSC with a Physics degree, and worked as an engineer for several years. Yet he always found this vocation wanting, so when the opportunity presented itself, he duly quit his job and co-founded 180 Films. Since then, he has built an...
Syria is a traditional society with a long cultural history. Importance is placed on family, religion, education, self-discipline and respect.

After three years of war and about 150 000 deaths, Syria is more torn apart than ever. But why is this war still going on ? How did the pacific "arab spring" become such a blood bath ? Here are some keys to understand how the syrian conflict turned into a civil, cold and holy war.

Historical artifacts in Syria are falling victim to the country's civil war. Priceless funeral sites and mosques are being damaged and looted.
