You can’t look at the news at the moment without seeing the name ISIS. But in Syria it isn’t just these brutal terrorists that are causing death and destruction, the Syrian government itself is still responsible for many civilian casualties.
With populated areas constantly under attack by “barrel bombs”—nasty oil drums full of explosives and chemical weapons that are dropped by the regime—Syria has become the most dangerous place in the world to live.
Helping to bring attention back to the plight of the ordinary people of Syria is this short film In Reverse commissioned by The Syria Campaign and directed by Martin Stirling, who previously directed Most Shocking Second A Day Video for SaveTheChildren.
The powerful film shows a bomb attack on a school playground but shot in reverse, starting with the aftermath of the destruction before pulling back to show its cause. It’s a touching and pertinent reminder that lives, many of those young children, are still being lost on a daily basis. Show your support to the people of Syria by signing the #withSyria petition.
