    • Excerpt: A heartbreaking testimony of a patriot defending her nation. Wise, beautifully observed, inspiring; has much to say to us Westerners worried about the paths our own countries seem to be heading down.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: A gut-wrenching masterpiece – a first person cinematic conscience of what the world is willing to tolerate in Syria.
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: [Filming] back then was about the dead telling [the world their] story. Now [the result is] about the living. The spirit in every frame burns brighter with each new viewer.
