Khobz El Hissar
Syria / 2015 / Arabic dialogue with English subtitles / 12 minutes
A woman smuggles bread to the besieged area with a shapely tree as her only shelter. A man runs away from the Syrian army leaving everything behind him. They both know there is no escape. Besieged Bread is a portait of a meeting between two commons in the middle of a chaotic war; a war that doesn’t escape anyone.
