Return To Homs Review

Image for Return To Homs

Two talented Syrians, 19 year-old Basset, a gifted footballer and singer, and Ossama, a 24 year-old activist, bring their skills and a camera to bear recording the brutal fallout of the Syrian revolution.

★★★★

Distilled from 300 hours of smuggled footage, this heroic account of the Syrian uprising lacks historical context and comes close to eulogising a radicalising activist and his singing goalkeeper sidekick. But the scenes of devastation are almost unbearable to watch.

A ferocious, devastating doc and a must-see for anyone seeking an insider's view of the Syrian uprising.
