Despite the increasing depravity of the Syrian civil war, the revolution began with an Arab Spring “Day of Rage,” on March 15, 2011 by mostly young protesters. Gathered in the Syrian capital of Damascus, the 200 or so demonstrators demanded democratic reforms and the ousting of President Bashar al-Assad.
American “combat journalist” Matthew Van Dyke, 34, is a self-styled “freedom fighter” and documentarian. Battling Muammar Qaddafi’s troops in Libya, Van Dyke humped it to Syria when the infamous dictator’s regime was finally toppled. He went on to produce a 14-minute documentary “Not Anymore: A Story of Revolution,” regarding the Syrian struggle. It’ll be making the rounds at film festivals this summer and from the looks of its trailer, you’re in store for a powerful piece of cinema.
