9 Days from my Window in Alleppo. Directed by Issa Touma

This incredibly personal and moving documentary brings the audience into Aleppo and the life of the filmmaker. In August 2012, Syrian photographer Issa Touma awoke to the dawn of the rebel uprising in the city of Aleppo. He spent the next nine days holed up in his apartment, filming the emerging civil war outside.
