From My Syrian Room
How can you keep your humanity in a country where you’re educated to erase in yourself any singularity? In his early years, the Syrian painter and filmmaker Hazem Alhamwi found his own way to live and to feel free, drawing obsessively in his own room. But in 2011, finally, the Revolution started. The Syrian people went out in the streets. Hazem Alhamwi found himself unable to face his terror immediately. How could he stay paralyzed in such an important moment in his destiny? Going back to his remote memories, from his childhood to nowadays, Hazem Alhamwi tells about the will of freedom of a whole country.
