Description

Join us for a special screening of the acclaimed documentary 'Syria: The Impossible Revolution', followed by a Q&A with award-winning filmmakers Anne Daly and Ronan Tynan.

“An incredible film on the history of the Syrian conflict”
-Legendary war photographer Paul Conroy speaking at a film premiere at the London School of Economics

Syria: The Impossible Revolution
Powerful and compelling, ‘Syria – The Impossible Revolution’, produced by award-winning filmmakers Anne Daly and Ronan Tynan, is a documentary that unravels the complexity of what is happening in Syria and what the United Nations has described as ‘the greatest human catastrophe of the 21st century’.

The first feature length film to attempt that challenge in showing the historical roots of the peaceful uprising in 2011 and how and why it quickly turned into a revolution as the Syrian people found themselves consumed by a violent response that is still reverberating.  And the first Irish-made feature-length documentary on the Syria crisis that has cost so many lives.
