CMU International Film Festival: A Syrian Love Story

25 Mar 2016


"Filmed over a period of five years, this intimate and insightful documentary perfectly balances the personal and the political, telling its tale of national and international upheavals through their impact on individuals at the cutting edge of change. This is a profoundly moving account of two love stories: that between the film’s central couple, Amer and Raghda, who are torn apart by imprisonment and exile; the other being their love for Syria, which casts a long shadow over their lives, their marriage and their children." -Mark Kermode, The Guardian

"An essential act of witnessing; a crucial conduit to understanding.”-Trevor Johnston, Timeout

"The deeper human truths of this documentary are here to stay."-Financial Times
