“Indeed, in the seventh year since the Assad regime brutally crushed a mass peaceful uprising in 2011, the regime and its allies are still bombing hospitals in Idlib. Not only are these warcrimes being ignored they are not even making news anymore!” (Ronan Tynan)
This feature length documentary offers unique insights into the roots of the Syrian Revolution. It seeks to unravel the ‘complexities’ of the bloodiest conflict in the Middle East and the politics of the Western response. It also examines why some elements on the Left are on the same page as the extreme Right defending the Assad regime and its Iranian and Russian allies committing what has been considered to be war crimes and crimes against humanity.
The film also examines the rise of the jihadis in Syria with evidence partly nurtured by Assad as he continues to present himself as "fighting the war on terror".
“An incredible film on the history of the Syrian conflict’. Paul Conroy, the legendary war photographers.
"The Impossible Revolution - Making Sense of the Syrian Tragedy"
“The Impossible Revolution - Making Sense of the Syrian Tragedy” is also the title of a book by Dr Yassin al-Haj Saleh, one of the most prominent intellectual voices of the Syrian revolution, who spent 16 years in the Syrian regime’s prisons from the age of 20. Yassin is featured in the film and copies of the book will be on sale at the event for a 50% discounted price.
