It’s March 15th; the anniversary of the Syrian Revolution, and the closing night of the “missing” DOX BOX edition. So, here we are, carrying the best of Syrian documentary films to screen parts of the Syrians’ lives back from the seventies, and to tell more about Syria, what it is, who we are, and maybe give a glance of what actually made the country rise up shouting for freedom

Manhal Alsarraj is an award winning Syrian author, who will appear at our panel discussion “Culture Under Fire: Creative Resistance in Syria”. She has published a number of books including Overcoming The Bridge (1997) and As the River Must (2000), which was banned from publication in Syria as it dealt with the Hama massacre of 1982, and On My Chest (2007).
