Still Recording

Two friends, Saeed and Milad, live in different cities in Syria; Saeed in Douma, a city under siege and Milad in Damascus, a city under the regime of Bashar al-Assad. Though caught up in the demented and macabre logic of a terrifying world, both friends try to survive and live with certain coherence. However, there is no room left for coherence in a world where crooks join a revolution to loot what should belong to the people; where solitary sportsmen try to keep fit while bombs fall all around them; a world with parties where drugs and alcohol flow freely while members of the Islamic State hang around; a place where invisible snipers are willing to shoot. A documentary not so much about war but about madness.
