Visit the ancient walled city of Damascus, Syria, at a time when the cultural values of the east meet those of the west, and the region is full of conflict.
We witness a beautiful city and its people, one few Americans of this period are encouraged to see. The film takes us through the maze of alleys and craft shops, to the great market “souk”, to the spectacular Umayyad Mosque and to one of the Palestinian refugee camps.
Film and editing by Andrew Courtney and Emily Perry (2005)
