Still Recording

by Ghiath Ayoub & Saeed Al Batal

In Still Recording, a film-testimony of virtuosic editing, we meet Saeed and Milad who, for the past four years, have been recording events in Eastern Ghouta, at the heart of hell. As death haunts the streets of Douma, this film pays tribute not only to the power of cinema but also to the courage of those who risk their lives to document massacres. A prize-winner in Venice, this film is created by the non-profit organization Bidayyat, which is responsible for the most memorable films of Syria's young generation.
