“Cries From Syria” by Evgeny Afineevsky

Anyone see the HBO documentary titled “Cries From Syria” directed by Russian director Evgeny Afineevsky? According to reviews, it highlights the voices of Syrian children–so vilified by Assad propagandists–& describes how anti-Assad graffiti on a school in Daraa led to the torture & murder of teenage boys & set off one of the worst humanitarian & political crises in our times.

A friend who saw it said it corresponds to the book “Burning Country: Syrians in Revolution & War” by Leila Al-Shami & Robin Yassin-Kassab. He’s willing to write a review of it for us but if any of you have seen it & would like to describe it, please do so here.
