  • NCMBianchi's rating of the film Still Recording

    [More like 4.5] Extremely good example of good cinema and good cinematography: these syrian cinema students put their lives on the line, by filming the war events that are afflicting the cities in Syria and its inhabitants. They record both their everyday life, and the fights between rebels and Assad's soldiers - as well as many conversation that show the thoughts of those living it on both sides.
