The War Show


Obaidah Zytoon is a Syrian radio host who got caught up in the euphoria of the 2011 Arab Spring. She documented the experiences of herself and her friends and shaped them into the personal narrative, The War Show. The film stands out from other films on Syria in its focus on what the revolution meant to everyday people, rather than dwelling on scenes of bloodshed and disaster.

Obaidah is one of the panelists at the opening of HÖFÐI Reykjavík Peace Centre on October 7.
