Once upon a time in Damascus

In aesthetically outstanding A MEMORY IN KHAKI director Alfoz Tanjour and his closest friends use their memories to tell the story about how Syria has changed from the political instability of the 70's to the catastrophic civil war of today. Ditching the all too familiar imagery of desperate refugees, bombed-out cityscapes and all-encompassing human misery in favour of a poetic vision of a country that no longer exists, the film sets out to document the impact of the war on the inner lives of the Syrian populace.
