Morning Fears, Night Chants (2012) by Guevara Namer and Diana El Jeiroudi  (credited as Salma Aldeiri Roula Ladqaniand )
A young Syrian woman doesn’t share her parents’ beliefs, but she’s still been locked up inside their belief system all her life. Because she is a young woman, her parents almost never allow her to leave the house, let alone participate in activities against the Syrian regime. But she rebels anyway. She writes and sings protest songs in secret, in the hope that they will encourage others to start thinking for themselves, and to believe in a better tomorrow with more freedom. For 37 minutes, we watch and hear about what motivates this young woman. Neither she nor the people around her ever appear identifiable on-screen. Even the voices are manipulated to keep the chance of recognition to a minimum. This makes it painfully clear what kind of world they’re living in – and how far their dreams and desires are removed from the reality of their lives. But in spite of it all, the woman continues to write and sing – so that she doesn’t have to stand by and look on powerlessly, and so she can experience just a tiny part of the freedom she’s dreaming of.

Return To Homs (2013) by Talal Derki | as line producer
War changes people, including 19-year-old Basset Saroot, who went from star goalkeeper for the Syrian national soccer team to peaceful advocate for Arab Spring reforms to armed insurgent. Return to Homs, which focuses on Basset and his ragtag group’s transformation and struggles, is a heart-stopping, often wrenching study of the brutal war President Bashar al-Assad’s regime has waged against the Syrian people — a war fought mostly out of camera range that has produced epic heroism and tragedy. Winner of Sundance’s 2014 World Cinema Grand Jury Prize for Documentary, this is an unprecedented view inside a conflict that many accuse the world of overlooking. (by POV).

Silvered Water (2014) by Ossama Muhammed | as Line Producer
In Syria, everyday, YouTubers film then die; others kill then film.
In Paris, driven by my inexhaustible love for Syria, I find that I can only film the sky and edit the footage posted on YouTube. From within the tension between my estrangement in France and the revolution, an encounter happened. A young Kurdish from Homs began to chat with me, asking: ‘If your camera were here, in Homs, what would you be filming?”. Silvered Water is the story of that encounter.
