What goes on in those 30 second clips of shelling seen on the evening news?
To help understand this question there will be a screening of two short documentaries that illuminate the realities of the Syrian crisis as experienced by Syrian people themselves.

The first will be Olly Lamberts’ 30 minute film ‘The Bombing of al-Bara,’ which captures the ghastly reality of the immediate aftermath of a bombing raid on neighbourhoods in the village of al-Bara. This film illustrates the insanity of war by documenting the devastating effects of aerial bombardment on human beings (a method which is being used not just in Syria but around the world (Gaza, Pakistan, Afghanistan etc….)
The second film will be Wael Kadlo's recent short film (8 mins) 'The Wound' (Bidayyat, 2013). This film takes us into the life 
situation of a Syrian woman risking her life to treat those wounded in the Syrian conflict.
Planning meeting: The planning meeting will commence after the films & discussion end at 8 p.m and will run until 9.30 p.m

(Whilst the film screening is free, a donation towards the maintenance costs of the LARC would be welcomed.)
