THE RETURN TO HOMS
Director: Talal Derki
Feb 13th, 2017
Grand Jury Prize : World Cinema - Documentary (Sundance Film Festival)
The Unforgettables (Cinema Eye Honors Award)
Filmed over 3 years in Homs, accompanying two outstanding young men from the time they were only dreaming of freedom to the time when they are forced to change course. Basset, the 19-year-old national football team goalkeeper, who became an outspoken demonstration leader in the city, then an icon revolution singer, and then he became a fighter... a militia leader. Ossama, his 24 year old friend, renowned citizen journalist, cynical pacifist... as his views are forced to change and he is detained by army secret service. It is the story of a city, of which the world has heard a lot, but never really got closer than what's on the news. A modern story of youth in war time.
