The crisis in Syria is now more urgent than ever. Humanitarian groups report that the death toll is escalating rapidly. More than half of the population of Syria will likely need aid by the end of the year, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees has warned, adding that the civil crisis is the most serious the global body has ever dealt with.
“The Suffering Grasses,” our documentary about Syria’s troubled revolution, conveys the situation in all of its complexity and challenges people to get involved. The documentary also highlights the work of nonviolent Syrian activists who have kept up their struggle and hope by developing extensive medical and other support networks. This is a crucial time to express solidarity.
