Summary This devastating and highly important film depicts the brutal reality of the Syrian Civil War as captured first-hand by both its victims and its perpetrators - or "1,001" ordinary Syrians. SILVERED WATER, SYRIA SELF-PORTRAIT is a rare poetic work that powerfully expresses the humanity and perseverance of Syrians as it explores the topography of their country torn by civil war that has left nearly 500,000 dead and 11,000,000 homeless. The film has been recognized by important institutions as perhaps the most artistically-accomplished documentary on the war to date. Official Selection at the **Cannes Film Festival**, **Toronto International Film Festival**, and **CPH:DOX Documentary Film Festival**. *"The horrors of the war in Syria and the siege of Homs are recounted with crude realism and poetic imagination... giving the measure of horror in Syria better than any documentary so far." - **Hollywood Reporter*** *"SILVERED WATER'S greatest achievement is to reel in the world's chaos and make it a work of cinematic art. There have been other films about the situation in Syria and sadly there will be more. Some have been brave and powerful, but none have transcended the document the way SILVERED WATER does." - **Bomb Magazine***
