Bassel Shehadeh: Streets of Freedom
This film was initially done on the First anniversary of the Syrian revolution 2012, but due to technical problems lost. The Syrian independent media project Kayani managed to recover the latest edited version Bassel did on the film before his death and to resolve the technical problems of the film, thus allowing it be shown to a greater audience on the occasion of the 2nd anniversary of the Syrian revolution
The film gives an interesting insight on the memories of different activists in different Syrian cities on the first weeks and months of the Syrian revolution. It is a compelling piece of memories of the activists youth on these days, that today sometimes seem so far away.
The late Bassel Shahade – young Syrian cinematographic talent – was killed by a mortar shell in Spring 2012 in Homs, teaching the activists there how to film and edit footage in the service of the Syrian uprising. The film was shown on Al Arabiya TV
