EVERYDAY LIFE IN A SYRIAN VILLAGE
Directed by Omar Amiralay
1974 / Syria / 83 mins
The first documentary to present an unabashed critique of the impact of the Syrian government’s agricultural and land reforms, Everyday Life in a Syrian Village delivers a powerful jab at the state’s conceit of redressing social and economic inequities.
