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.
