Cries From Syria documentary screening

Join us for a free screening of the film 'Cries from Syria' at FACT Cinema, Liverpool, on 31 July.

The screening has been organised to highlight the plight of millions of innocent civilians whose lives have been changed forever by the conflict in Syria and as a fundraising event for Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF).

An Oscar-nominated documentary by Evgeny Afineevsky, Cries From Syria is a searing, comprehensive account of a brutal five-year conflict from the inside out, drawing on hundreds of hours of war footage from Syrian activists and citizen journalists, as well as testimony from child protesters, leaders of the revolution, human rights defenders, ordinary citizens, and high-ranking army generals who defected from the government.

Their collective stories are a cry for attention and help from a world that little understands their reality or agrees on what to do about it.

Please note the film is graphic in its depiction of the Syrian conflict and contains many upsetting images. This event is only open to those aged 18 and over.
