Until recently, many here in the United States didn’t know much about what was going on in Syria. At this point, it is clear that the conflict has far reaching impact for both Syrians and the rest of the world. Of course, it is important for all of us to remember the human toll of war.
The War Show is a documentary that follows the lives of a group of friends. When they first attended what was expected to be a peaceful protest in 2011, they had no way of knowing what would become of them. They understood that what they were filming was important, but did not know how their stories would progress.
The consequences of war are not pretty. Lives are lost and lives are damaged. Perhaps, this documentary will help us understand the importance non-violent conflict resolution and cause us to do our part to make the world a better place.
