This Is Not Me: Enduring Syria's War

Bridgette Auger
THIS IS NOT ME: ENDURING SYRIA'S WAR looks beyond the enormous physical destruction caused by the war to the profound emotional and mental toll on those forcibly displaced by the violence. This documentary short follows two men as they move from the euphoria of revolution to the throes of suicidal guilt. They obsess over watching the war on YouTube, unable to move on with their lives because of the irreconcilable question, "Why am I alive while friends and family fight and die back home?" These feelings are exemplary of the two million Syrians who have fled the violence that has killed over 100,000 people.
