|GETTING THROUGH TO SYRIA: THOSE WHO DARE|
|Crew: ||Producers: Lucy Chapman - Screenwriters: Lucy Chapman - Cinematographer: Charlie Clayton - Editor: Hameed Hassan|
A doctor, a mother and a business man take us on their journey into Syria and show us that where there is a will, there is a way. This is not a large faceless NGO - this is a grass roots 'family' driven by a desire to do good in the face of incredible danger. They bring the landscape of devastation and destruction into our consciousness in a very personal and accessible way. From sprawling refugee camps, to under-resourced and targeted hospitals - through to the kitchen of their headquarters in Turkey, they define what daring to care really means. We record their journeys as they deliver aid, operate on patients, find out what the Syrian people need most - and show us how they must grapple with the dilemmas of what they do - which is not only helping people, but also losing people they love. We follow them from London, to Turkey, to being smuggled across the border and inside Syria - learning who they are and why what they are doing really matters.
