Starting with Fragments

A Film by Omar Shalash
and Robert Dobe

Synopsis

Since 2011, the bloody conflict in Syria rages on. Long before the refugees arrived, images of this war – seemingly so far away – came first. Those were the images of our friend Tamer Alawam. Tamer went into exile in Germany, yet he did not find peace. Again and again, he was drawn back to his native country – „to show to the world my Syria from the inside“, as he himself once put it. He travelled illegally and armed only with his camera – until he was hit by a grenade. All that is left are the memories and the hard drive with his footage from the Syrian war. Three years after Tamer’s death, we begin our search for answers. A documentary about the difficult decision between activism and inaction and every individual‘s personal responsibility.
