Silvered Water: A Film Screening and Discussion with Ossama Mohammed
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
“Shot by ‘1,001 Syrians’ according to the caption, Silvered Water, Syria Self-Portrait is a relentless chronicle of the horrors of the war told through grainy, jumpy, pixillated eyewitness accounts shot on cell phones. The immediacy the film achieves is shocking, but it is also mediated by three things: filmmaker Wiam Simav Bedirxan’s more professional vid-cam shooting during the siege of Homs, filmmaker Ossama Mohammed’s highly expressionistic editing together images, sound and music, and their intimate reflections on what they themselves are going through.” —Deborah Young for Cannes Film Review
